Following the news that the white iPhone 4 is slightly thicker than its black variant, 9to5Mac reader Ernesto Barron tweeted Apple Senior Vice President of Product Marketing Phil Schiller to see if the news is really true. After sending Schiller a public tweet with a URL to the above image, which is from our previous post, Schiller responded to him through a Twitter direct message. We’re not sure why Schiller, who has been tweeting publicly for months now, decided to answer through a direct message.

It is not thicker, don’t believe all the junk that you read

For what it is worth, everyone’s favorite magazine, Consumer Reports says they are the same thickness as well.

Note: We logged into the Twitter account to verify the direct message in both Twitter for Mac and Twitter’s website.
