Hi there, Mi Colleagues!|
This is very interesting news. Someone from Mi Admin can confirm this. Though it looks real.
MIUI is the heavily modified Android version that Xiaomi releases all of their phones (except for the Xiaomi Mi A1) with. While you would expect many of Xiaomi’s mainstream consumer base to be fans of MIUI over stock Android, it seems that a large number of Xiaomi customers actually prefer Android One over MIUI, at least according to a now deleted poll posted by the official Xiaomi Twitter account.

Note: This is not my phone nor my Tweeter account cuz I don't have one (^=^).
Users were asked to vote for their preferred Android software experience between MIUI 9 or Android One. It’s likely that the social media team behind the Twitter account misread their own audience, and as a result, it backfired hilariously. Companies often do this, as it shows off their reputation and can even convince consumers interested in their products to buy them if they see fan polls go well. However, shortly after the tweet went live, it was deleted when 57% out of approximately 15,000 voters voted in favor of Android One over MIUI 9. Oops.
If I'm given a chance, I will vote for Android One too! This is one of the big factors I bought this MiA1. Although I also like MiUI, I will cross the bridge when the 2 year promised of Xiaomi to provide Stock android get there... (^=^)
My big question now is why Xiaomi needs to delete it when this was their initiative in the first place? Why waste time and effort of Mi admin to set this up and waste users' to vote. User's valuable intention to participate in voting are just...wasted.
