Twitter vs Facebook: CEO Jack Dorsey trolls FB’s rebranded logo, netizens have a hearty laugh
Will Zuckerberg respond to Dorsey’s jibe?
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.

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

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.

Facebook letting Mark Zuckerberg personally design a new logo in Word 97 was an interesting choice https://t.co/Mg9cSw6Iu6— nilay patel (@reckless) 1572884835000

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.
