Alicia Keys Uses iPhone to Tweet Despite Promised Loyalty to BlackBerry

Keys is BlackBerry's new creative director for the BlackBerry 10 devices/software
BlackBerry may have thought it had an edge when it brought Alicia Keys onboard as the creative director for the
new BlackBerry 10 devices/software
, but the R&B singer-songwriter has already cheated on the brand with Apple.
Keys recently told
The New York Times
that she exclusively uses BlackBerry 10 devices now that she's the creative director of the line. However, it looks like Twitter busted Keys with an Apple device today.
Keys posted a tweet earlier today saying, "Started from the bottom now we're here!" However, the tweet was sent via the Twitter for iPhone app (as indicated in the screenshot below).
When the tweet started making its way around the Web, Keys posted yet another tweet saying, "What the h*ll?!!!! Looks like I've been hacked...I like @Drake but that wasn't my tweet :-("
While it's not so weird for celebrities to promote a product while using competing devices, this particular situation is a bit more interesting considering Keys has a paid position on the actual BlackBerry team; not just a promoter.

Blame it on another iOS device.

She should have just said that she accidentally used the iPhone app on her iPad (can be done with certain apps if you obtain them through iCloud or something).
Unless they actually expected her to use a BB PlayBook.
BWAA! HA HA HA! ;)

I'm sure that's what the contract she signed stipulates.
If she's incapable of sticking to her word, then her charcter is poor and should be be a paid spokesperson for BB in the first place.
If we continue to lower OUR expectations of others in our society, then we lower our expectations of ourselves.
Don't be a follower in life. It's just pathetic.
