On Sunday 18 September, mobile phone manufacturers, Tecno Mobile told the world their painful love story. It was surprising that a company making brisk business in a country of 170 million people could have suffered such heartbreak.
From a series of tweets, which have been deleted, Tecno told of how friends and associates had been sceptical about the success of the relationship. But, being a shrewd business firm, they had continued. The firm, however, refused to continue the story sparking suspicion it was too emotional to be shared.
In reality, the tweets are suspected to have been from a female employee, who mans the company’s Twitter account, failing to switch accounts from Tecno’s to her private account before circulating the tweets.
