Update (2/9/16): In the hours following our post, Apple CEO Tim Cook pulled the tweet that included the blurry photo. Justin Herrick, EIC of Talk Android, noticed Cook’s sly move when checking a tweet of his own that linked to the Apple CEO’s.
Hit the break for the original story.
Original Story (2/8/16):
When you’re the CEO of Apple and you have nearly 2 million followers on Twitter, your Twitter photo game better be on point all the time.
Sadly, Apple CEO Tim Cook didn’t remember that bit of wisdom Sunday when he posted the photo seen above to his Twitter stream.
Taken from what appears to be about the 15 yard line of Levi’ Stadium in San Francisco, the photo of the postgame celebration after the Broncos won Super Bowl XL was a bit blurry. And the Twitterverse was not shy about letting him know it.
One user responded with this:
@tim_cook Uh… Is the message here that iPhones take terrible photos of important moments?! Because that really seems to be the msg here.

Another posted this response:

And it appears Tim Cook actually blocked this user after his response:

Just goes to show you that nobody, not even Tim Cook, is safe from the wrath of the Internet.
