BlackBerry creative director Alicia Keys 'tweets from an iPhone'

By
Alicia Keys has reportedly posted a tweet from an Apple iPhone, despite last month being announced as global creative director of BlackBerry.

The singer told The New York Times that she was now exclusively using the new BlackBerry Z10, but she was caught tweeting "started from the bottom now were here! (sic)" from the Twitter for iPhone app yesterday morning (February 11) - a reference to Drake's new single.

The original tweet has been deleted, and Keys later apologised and claimed that she did not post the iPhone tweet, reports Pocket-Lint.

She also questioned whether she had been hacked, tweeting: "What the hell?!!!! Looks like I've been hacked... I like @Drake but that wasn't my tweet :-("

At the launch of BlackBerry 10 last month, Keys appeared on stage with BlackBerry chief executive Thorsten Heins to confirm her new role promoting the firm.

She said that she previously had a "long-term relationship with BlackBerry, but noticed some funkier and blingier phones at the gym". This led to her "two-timing" BlackBerry with "another phone".

However, the BlackBerry 10 software then came along, and Keys claimed that she was so impressed that she and BlackBerry are now "exclusively dating again".

The majority of tweets posted on Keys's account have come from a Twitter web interface, which masks what type of device has been used to send the message.

But there are growing questions over whether Keys actually uses the new BlackBerry Z10 as her regular phone, or still has an iPhone.

This was fuelled by a photo of the singer at her dressing room table at the Grammys on Sunday, with two Apple iPhones in front of her.

If Keys has indeed been caught out, this would not be the first time that celebrities have come unstuck over tech product endorsements.

Last November, Oprah Winfrey tweeted how impressed she was with Microsoft's Surface RT tablet, but did it from an iPad.
