Nokia’s “Thanks Apple!” Tweet Becomes the Most Successful Branded Tweets Ever!  Nokia mocks Apple to copy the color of its Lumia smartphone

Nokia’s tweet of mocking the colors of Apple’s new iPhones gets more than 38,000 retweets

Since Apple released the two new models of iPhone, a lot of comments have been found throughout the internet, mocking Apple copying the color of Nokia’s smartphones. This time, Nokia’s marketing team takes a chance to make fun of the tech giant’s recent innovation, tweeting a post with an image, thanking apple and mocking the company by stating that the giant company has imitated the color of Nokia Lumia!

Nokia UK posted a tweet -“thanks, Apple”, followed by an image of its colorful Lumia smartphones with a text: “Imitation is the best form of flattery”!

WinBeta states that the tweet has seen an outstanding response from the people. With more than 38,000 retweets, it has become the most successful branded tweet ever.

Though many people argue that the color is such a thing which no phone company owns, Nokia is considered as the first company to release colored smartphones. Moreover, Nokia uses powder blue, lemon, lavender, white and chartreuse colors in their smartphones. Apple is also found to use all of these colors in their new iPhones. So, it is indeed a great chance for Nokia to mock the tech giant.

Nonetheless, it is always great to see the competition between the two giant companies, even by tweeting to mock each other!
