A number of users were complaining about the strange behavior with the Twitter app on Huawei phones. The Twitter app was seemingly deleting pictures immediately after the user saved them to the phone using the app.
After saving the image, users could see a message from “Huawei System Services” that said, “Twitter has deleted a photo from Gallery”. You can see a live example here.
In a statement, Huawei attributed the issue to a quirk with two specific builds of the Twitter app, along with the image-protection system that’s built into its Huawei EMUI software.
Here’s the company’s statement in full:
“Huawei has recently received user reports that alleges the Twitter app automatically deletes images on Huawei devices.”
“Having investigated the issue, Huawei has discovered that whenever users of certain devices download an image using specific builds of the Twitter app (version 7.78.0 and 7.77.0), the app will automatically create a folder of the same name as the image and promptly delete it in the background. This action triggers Huawei’s built-in image protection alert, causing the system to notify the user of the deletion. However, the images are not affected. Users may find their images at the following location: File Manager/picture/Twitter.”
“Huawei is currently in conversation with Twitter to resolve this issue as soon as possible. Huawei remains committed to delivering the best user experiences.”
It means, No pictures were permanently deleted; they were just moved to a separate location on the phone’s file system. This inadvertently caused a feature in EMUI to show a notification, which made users panic and think the worst.
If you are using #Huawei in China, you will not allowed to download images via Twitter app. I have received many reports among the Chinese Twitter users. This comes from system level of Chinese Huawei ROM, and it's trying to slander Twitter app itself! pic.twitter.com/leNm6je9E3

During the keynote deliverance, he emphasizes that network intelligence has been recognizing as the wireless autonomous driving network foundation. The network engines are preparing for the ability to self-learn and self-evolve with the help of enormous network data.
In addition, precise network algorithms and different approach models are also being prepared, escorting the network technology towards independent thinking. However, it’s still lacking a good synchronization between autonomous driving networks in mobile communications.
According to the Huawei president, the autonomous driving network current lies between L2 and L3 technology in the mobile network field. The industry needs joint efforts to bring both networks to the same level.
He further explains Huawei is willing to put more effort in terms of level criteria, evaluation systems, and application collaboration to established an autonomous driving network. the company holds serval projects and continually collaborating with operators and industry partners to create smart autonomous networks.
The industry reports show, industry and operators’ hierarchical recognition for driverless driving is becoming the center approach of operators. Furthermore, a recent white paper survey forecasts a positive image for future autonomous technologies.
According to the report, the analyzers surveyed about 42 independent network operators in the industry. Among them, about 80% are confident in their technologies and approaches for stationing fully autonomous driving networks that will a large-scale deployment within a decade.
To be mention, it was the 12th Global Mobile Broadband Forum, held in Dubai on the 13th of October. Its purpose is to bring the industrial leaders and global partners together to discuss the mobile network and adjacent vertical ecosystems.
Huawei’s Cloud and AI technologies contributing in building smart cities
On 14th October, the 2021 Global Smart City Conference was concluded in Shanghai, China. At the event, Huawei officials informed more cities are joining the smart city project. To date, 50 cities including Fuzhou, Chengdu, Changchun, Nanchang, Shanghai, and Suzhou have been accepted the “urban intelligence”.
The company is constructing an integrated intelligent system with a three-dimensional viewpoint. In addition, the ecology in Huawei smart cities also concerns global collaboration, explicit evaluation, and the constant unfolding of new technologies.
Purpose of Urban Intelligence:
Urban intelligence is based on the concept to delivered quick and precise services. Its purpose is to serve civilians, companies, and management to help them save labor and time. In this manner, these resources can be used where they are most needed.
Explaining in an example, President Kun stated, like a Netcom service can manage an entire city to operate one thing. Furthermore, a single network management system can provide enough help to the government efficiently handle one thing.
The official information shows, the Shenzhen-based firm is planning to perform an improved network administration service as implemented back last year. To be mention, in 2020 the company’s solution involves three working areas described below-
- One-Network Management: It handles online and offline collaboration with the help of its four subdivided sectors- discovery, scheduling, disposal, and analysis
- Auxiliary Operations: The solution provider is responsible for teaching the operation and execution of the system to the government.
- Zero-Trust Security: It ensures that the reliability of the officials. It prologues the concept of “Don’t trust anyone, but trust this system”.
In the last of his deliverance, the Huawei president further proposes three ideas to making smart cities more smarter. It includes- solving cross-sectoral problems, building a unified management network, and providing full support to urban intelligence.
