4 Brand Brawls on Twitter
We’ve all witnessed our friends, colleagues and celebrity figures get into Twitter fights (just check out Ricky Gervais’ Twitter feed; he’s usually starting stuff). It’s never becoming of anyone really, but it’s always entertaining. And sometimes, too infrequently frankly, it happens with brands too.
Check out these four examples of brands throwing down on Twitter against other brands. Sometimes the Twitter battles are too perfect, you wonder if it was setup. And we’re OK with that, just so long as brands staring mixing it up.

3. Dallas Cowboys vs. Dallas Stars: Sports teams’ official Twitter accounts are usually pretty official and proper, but these two Texas teams got into it via tweets.

4. AMC vs. Oreo: This one was all in good fun. AMC noticed that Oreo had tweeted about sneaking in Oreo cookies into movie theaters. What followed was some fun back-and-forth between the brands, but AMC totally came out on top by tweeting this “I’m watching you with my Oreo eyes” picture. (via Adfreak)
