Sassy Brands That Have Burned Other Brands on Twitter
Brands like Oreo, Doritos, and AMC are in our homes regularly, so it's fun to see them show their personalities on social media sites like Twitter. There's almost nothing better than a funny brand tweet, except, of course, for a full-on brand-on-brand Twitter entanglement. You may have noticed that brands on Twitter aren't shy about going after other companies.
Trash talking isn't just for the sports arena. When you've got big business to protect, you won't shy away from a little confrontation. Just ask Burger King or Verizon. Here are the sassy brands on Twitter delivering sick burns to their competitors. Company tweets FTW!
@OldSpice Is your deodorant made with really old spices?— Taco Bell (@tacobell) July 9, 2012
Old Spice tried to get sassy here, but they underestimated their opponent.
Taco Bell fired back at Old Spice's fire sauce with a sassy tweet that totally slayed.
Still waiting to see T-Mobiles new ad? Maybe its because you have T-mobile. #getabetternetworkhttps://t.co/BD4FLZbd3T— Verizon (@verizon) February 8, 2016
Coming in hot with that T-Mobile burn!
@penguins Strange. Our latest observations show no Penguin activity currently on ice in Pittsburgh. Where did they go?— Discovery (@Discovery) May 14, 2015
The Discovery Channel's Twitter moderator is apparently not a fan of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
With little-to-no prompting, they delivered a sick Twitter burn about the hockey team's (nonexistent) skill level. Ouch.
Kris Jenner has successfully turned herself (and her family) into their own brand - complete with entrepreneurial endeavors that span beauty, gaming apps, and fashion. But when it came time for Jenner to promote her new accessories line in July 2016, Staples couldn't help but notice that one of her necklaces didn't exactly look high-end.
They decided to help budget shoppers out by letting them know they could re-create the look with a few simple office supplies. So nice of them to look out for the common (wo)man!
At least our #9 got the job done..... RT:" @DallasCowboys Similarly in the category of nobody-caresthe NHL is back!" pic.twitter.com/06y0e6iG— Dallas Stars (@DallasStars) January 8, 2013
Hometown showdown! The Dallas Cowboys tweeted their disdain for their home city's hockey team - only to get totally owned.
Hell yeah, Dallas Stars.
Hey, @Honda. Next time, try sucking up something your own size. #MegaStuf pic.twitter.com/GToo0a3rZG— Oreo Cookie (@Oreo) October 1, 2013
When Honda tweeted about their new vacuum's capability to suck up "double stuff," Oreo was not having it.
We don't blame you, Oreo - those cookies belong in human bellies, not Hondas'!
