First Wendy’s was in a Twitter rap battle with Wingstop and now Burger King is dragging them on the social media site over spicy nuggets. It all started with BK digging up old tweets from disappointed fans upset when Wendy’s stopped serving their spicy nuggets and promoting them. That got the attention of many Twitter users, some were laughing and some were just confused.
But then Burger King took it a step further and started replying to the tweets about Wendy’s getting rid of the spicy nuggets, to let folks know that they’re now serving up spicy nuggets. It’s kind of an evil genius move, really.
But it didn’t take long for the clever strategy to get the attention of the folks at Wendy’s. They responded to a reply to a tweet about Burger King being shady, tweeting “Smells like desperation up in here.” But they’ve set the bar so high in the past, we expected something more. So this round goes to Burger King.
