Amazon Echo's official Twitter account made a blunder that may have given hope to followers waiting for new Echo Dot stocks with bated breath. It sent out a tweet introducing an all-new and cheaper Echo Dot, according to Recode, but it deleted the post as quickly as it went out. If the company's social media team didn't tweet on purpose to drum up interest -- post-then-delete is a common tactic used by celebs -- then someone may have fired it out a bit too early. If you'll recall, the tech titan also accidentally posted an iPhone 7 accessories landing page before Apple announced the product on stage.

Either way, the post caught by @Indypodcaster says the new Echo Dot will set you back $50 -- $40 less than the original one's price. Clicking the link on what he quoted just takes you to the first Echo Dot's listing, though, which has been sold out since July. You'll just have to wait for the e-retailer to officially announce its new Alexa-powered speaker if you want to buy one.
