The software giant has now updated the post - and published a correction with the US Securities and Exchange Commission - that made the claim with new data, namely: "We have seen a 775 per cent increase in Teams' calling and meeting monthly users in a one month period in Italy, where social distancing or shelter in place orders have been enforced."

Microsoft has at least been classy enough to apply a strikethrough tag to the mistake, rather than dropping it into an Orwellian memory hole.

You can always try to make it look bigger than it is.
