Influencers, companies, and even stars promote Android products on Twitter tweeting from iPhone. But this won’t be the case anymore!

Elon Musk has now decided to remove the Twitter for iPhone/Android identifier that appears at the bottom of tweets.

It was never an ideal guide, but the label would make it clear what device was being used and it helped users spot bots.

Samsung will be ecstatic as time and again, it has tweeted mocking Apple, its largest rival.

When Apple unveiled the new M2 iPad Pro, iPad 10, and a next-generation Apple TV 4K, CEO Tim Cook posted a #TakeNote hashflag on Twitter so customers could be hyped up about the future products. Soon, the Google Pixel US account made a joke with the hashtag, but they tweeted from an iPhone.

A few years ago, Huawei spent some cash to hire actor Gal Godot to get people raving about their phones, but she, too tweeted from her iPhone, but the tweet was  deleted and reposted from an Android phone instead.

Now, no one can intentionally show that they’re using Twitter on an iPhone.

They also help me to express the myriads of emotions I go through. When not working, I'm either watching the latest tech videos or flipping through pages.
