Starstruck

22 May

On May 8, Gul Panag launched Samsung’s new touchscreen phone, Star. Before and after she did this, she was tweeting away about her trip to Hyderabad where the launch took place and about an awful experience on a Jet Airways flight.

What seems to have gone unnoticed is that she was promoting the Samsung launch (not the phone) from her iPhone… is Samsung aware?

Don’t believe me? Hit this tweet of hers…and notice that the update was sent from PocketTweets (an iPhone app); of late she’s moved to TwitterFon, another iPhone app.

Or, see this:

So long Samsung… is your Star is being two-timed by the star?

    Mohit,

    Do any celebrities ever use what they promote?? Imagine all the celebrities who endorse Lux using the soap! two timing by the stars is a given!!

    True Samir, but I’ve never seen it as blatantly as this… proves the belief anyway :-)

    Great stuff Mohit…… Its ok for celebs to have personal prefrences, but they need to be careful about not contradicting themselves esp. in these connected times.

    Yet another tweet bytes the dust ;)

    Cheers
