* Chinese phone giant Huawei has reportedly demoted two employees for tweeting from an iPhone. Huawei's official account tweeted ‘Happy #2019,’ but the tweet was marked ‘via Twitter for iPhone.’ According to an internal memo, Huawei blamed a supplier it hired to handle its social media operations abroad. But the memo adds that two staffers, including the head of digital marketing, were demoted and had their pay cut.
