Nokia's iPhone 5C diss tweet is a viral hit, even if Lumias aren't

nokiaappletweet.jpgA simple tweet from Nokia having a knock at Apple’s new iPhone 5C handset has become a certified Twitter viral smash.

On the night of the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S launch, Nokia’s official Twitter account posted the message “Thanks, #Apple ;)”, alongside a picture of the company’s colourful Lumia range with the tagline “Imitation is the best form of flattery”. It seems as if the Finnish smartphone manufacturers believe Apple took more than a little inspiration from the look of the Lumia’s when it comes to the new colourful plastic casing found on the iPhone 5C line-up.

And, even if Lumia sales pale in comparison to iPhones, Twitter users retweeted the hell out of the post. Twitter have revealed that the post was shared and retweeted over 38,000 times since the iPhone’s unveiling.

Turn those retweets into some Lumia sales and Nokia/Microsoft would be truly smiling.
