Britain’s second largest newspaper, the Daily Mail, began their article on the supposed recall of the iPhone 4 (screenshot here, since the original has been pulled) in this way:
The much vaunted new iPhone 4 may be recalled, Apple boss Steve Jobs revealed last night.
Posting a message on the social networking site Twitter, the tycoon said: “We may have to recall the new iPhone. This I did not expect.”
There was just one problem: the tycoon didn’t actually say it.
The quote was actually from @ceostevejobs, a popular Steve Jobs parody Twitter account, whose bio reads:
I don’t care what you think of me. You care what I think of you. Of course this is a parody account.
And if bios aren’t your thing, here’s the post two tweets down from the Daily Mail quote:
Oh yeah, everyone’s been holding the mouse wrong too.
And below that?
Just FaceTimed my wife. If you know what I mean.
Well, this seems like a totally understandable mistake.
