Facebook and Twitter locking horns over an issue isn’t really surprising given the current scheme of things. So, when the Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey trolled FB’s rebranded, all-caps logo yesterday, it didn’t exactly come as a surprise.

Dorsey, in a hilarious tweet, poked fun at Facebook’s logo (which now comes in a pink hue) by posting a tweet that read, ‘Twitter...From TWITTER’.

For the uninitiated, on Tuesday, the folks at Facebook, in an attempt to differentiate between ‘Facebook’, the app from ‘Facebook’, the company, launched their new logo.

If reports are to be believed, Facebook will also be adding a ‘from FACEBOOK’ tag in all the services in owns like Whatsapp and Instagram as a (not so subtle) reminder that California-based company owns them.

The Twitter CEO, in a tongue-in-cheek tweet, took a jibe at Facebook’s expense and netizens had a field day responding to Dorsey’s witty tweet.

This user got his creative juices flowing and created a new logo for Twitter.

Some users took the opportunity to point out that Twitter still doesn’t have an edit button.

And, of course, Twitterati came up with their own versions of Dorsey’s tweet

This, of course, comes after Facebook’s new logo being called out for it’s simple, boring and uninspiring font. Twitterati had a field day on Tuesday, dragging Facebook for the new design.

Dorsey’s tweet comes almost a week after Twitter announced their decision to stop political advertising on their platform globally. Twitter’s strong stand against political advertisements put all eyes on Facebook and its senior executives Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg who have always defended Facebook’s policy on political ads.

Will Mark Zuckerberg respond to Dorsey’s cheeky tweet with a jibe of his own? It will be interesting to see if the two CEOs, who have always been at odds with each other, will engage in a friendly social media banter.

The announcement came just days after a tweet from President Donald Trump hinting at the use of nuclear weapons, which sparked criticism that the social network was allowing threats of violence. However, the social media giant has suspended famous accounts in the past. Take a look:
