Verizon tweet comes from an iPhone, gets deleted

The Verizon iPhone is coming soon, and the first hints of its appearance are showing. Apparently, @Verizon tweeted via an iPhone. The tweet was removed later. What is happening?

According to Business Insider, a Verizon tweet came from an iPhone (screenshot above). The news site also linked to the tweet directly. When I tried to visit it, the tweet did not exist. 

Now it could be, as Business Insider also points, that the Verizon employee who posted that was using an AT&T phone. But it isn't likely, is it? The question remains: Why was the tweet deleted? I also searched for the tweet on the @Verizon Twitter page, and I found a couple of similar tweets. But neither was from an iPhone.
