SAN FRANCISCO, CA – JANUARY 27: An Apple Store customer carries a brand new iMac computer on January 27, 2015 in San Francisco, California. Apple Inc. posted huge first-quarter profits with revenue of $74.6 billion, up from $57.6 billion a year ago.

The tech giant’s tweet shared an article to guide users on properly cleaning their computers.

The official Twitter Windows shared PC cleanup tips report from one of their executives, Carmen Zlateff, who currently serves as PM Partner Director for Windows 11 User Experience.

The tweet, which has now been deleted, shared “tips on how to clean and operate your device safely and gently”. And the advice comes from no one but the Microsoft executive herself.

While the tweet caption didn’t spark controversy, the image attached to it surprised some people somewhat.

Instead of a photo that featured a Windows PC, the software company’s official Twitter account posted an image that featured one of Apple’s computers, an iMac M1.

It was a green iMac, which even comes with Apple accessories, such as the Magic Mouse and Magic Keyboard, both in the same green colorway.

Apple M1 iMac and Windows

According to a report by 9to5Mac, what made the incident more interesting was that the official Windows Twitter account tweeted an iMac, which has an M1 chip.

The outlet noted that it wouldn’t have been a big deal if the iMac in the photo was an older version from Intel. It comes as it could easily run Windows through its built-in application, Boot Camp.

However, M1 Macs are specifically notorious for their inability to install and run Windows natively, unlike their predecessors.

In addition to that, it should be noted that Microsoft also offers its own hardware in its Surface line, including Surface Studio, Surface Pro, and Surface Laptop.

Despite this, Windows tweeted an iMac instead.
