Trash talking and banter is not only restricted to the sports arena. We need to thank the Internet Gods for giving us Twitter for the very simple reason that it is absolutely gold. Companies don’t shy away from dissing their competitors or random people who call them out on the social media platform. What follows, are some of the best and funniest tweets from sassy companies delivering sick burns.
Netflix vs Hulu

Welcome to your tape https://t.co/juAMcd0jjU
— Netflix US (@netflix) April 18, 2017
You can’t get away by being sassy with Netflix. Way to use Hulu’s content against them.
Discovery Channel vs Pittsburgh Penguins
— Discovery (@Discovery) May 13, 2015
@penguins Strange. Our latest observations show no Penguin activity currently on ice in Pittsburgh. Where did they go?
— Discovery (@Discovery) May 14, 2015
I don’t think whoever handles Discovery’s twitter handle is a fan of the Pittsburgh Penguins. This comeback was absolutely savage since the Penguins had been eliminated from the Stanley Cup just a week before this.
iHOP vs Denny’s
WE ARE THE PANCAKE OG AND WILL BE RESPECTED AS SUCH
— IHOP (@IHOP) July 12, 2017
spoken like 2nd place
— IHOP (@IHOP) July 12, 2017
I don’t know about the tweets, but there was only one winner in this whole conversation: Pancakes
Taco Bell vs Old Spice
@OldSpice Is your deodorant made with really old spices?
— Taco Bell (@tacobell) July 9, 2012
Taco Bell is one of the funniest accounts on Twitter and to be completely honest, you should keep an out for their sassy responses.
Moonpie Vs Hostess
Lol ok https://t.co/lobyuNOkee
— MoonPie (@MoonPie) August 21, 2017
All Moonpie required was two words to throw shade at Hostess.
Arby’s vs Jon Stewart
— Arby's (@Arbys) August 6, 2015
Jon, feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com.
— Arby's (@Arbys) February 11, 2015
Jon Stewart of The Daily Show fame had been calling out Arby’s on national television for many years with jokes questioning their food’s edibility. “It’s like a shock and awe for your bowels,” the comedian once said. When he finally retired, Arby’s grabbed the opportunity they had waited for and produced these brilliant tweets.
Reebok vs A ‘Certain’ President
In case you were wondering when it IS appropriate to say, "You're in such good shape…beautiful,"… THIS: pic.twitter.com/Z1cnnRD8Ut
— Reebok (@Reebok) July 14, 2017
Reebok showed a sense of class and wit with this brilliant ad which threw shade at you-know-who.
Royal Mail vs Random Fan
@IHaveABirthmark Sorry to hear that, when exactly did your mum post them & what service was used?? ;-D
— Royal Mail (@RoyalMail) June 18, 2014
Royal Mail got their A game to twitter when they responded to this fan’s query with a brilliant mom joke.
Tesco vs Hater
— Tesco Mobile (@tescomobile) June 30, 2013
Tesco has no time for its haters. Tesco threw the shade right back to this person complaining about the company.
Oreo vs AMC Theatres
Ever bring your own Oreo cookies to the movie theater? #slicksnacker
— Oreo Cookie (@Oreo) September 25, 2012
— AMC Theatres (@AMCTheatres) September 25, 2012
Oreo’s social media presence has impressed us before, however when Oreo posted this tweet in September 2012 it was AMC Theatres that put “Milk’s Favorite Cookie” in its place.
