Oprah's Surface Raves Are Coming From An iPad

Earlier this month, Oprah gave Microsoft Surface a rave review. Since then, she's been keeping up the positive chatter about it on Twitter. The catch? She's been doing it with an iPad. Or at least her social media intern has.

Twitter removed the ability for third-party clients to broadcast their use on vanilla web Twitter earlier this year, so the contradiction went largely unnoticed until it got picked up by users of Tweetbot, which still shows that info. This wasn't just a one time thing either; we've confirmed a few other glowing pro-Surface tweets have come from an iPad as well. Like these two, extolling its virtues:

Yep! Those too were sent via iPad. Then again, it's not entirely her fault; even if she had wanted to use Surface, it doesn't have a native Twitter app. I wonder if irony is one of Oprah's #FavoriteThings. [The Next Web]
