Facebook has just done the equivalent of talking to yourself on your Facebook wall, but on Twitter.
On Wednesday, the Facebook app sent out its first tweet by introducing some of Facebook’s other tools that are also on Twitter.
“Hello Twitter! We’re the Facebook app from @Facebook. Just like @messenger, @instagram, @WhatsApp, and @oculus. Hi fam!” the @facebookapp account wrote.
“The Facebook app has a Twitter account??” it answered in a follow-up tweet. “We know, it’s confusing. It’s kind of like if @netflix got a @hulu account.”
While the posts seem harmless, it’s what that ensued that has Twitter users cringing.
Soon after, the other accounts started replying.

Seemingly miffed that it didn’t get a mention, Facebook’s gaming service invited itself into the group.

We even have an app of our own! (OK, fine, it's not launched everywhere yet, don't @ us)

Twitter users aren’t amused. “Are a bunch of folks all [from] the same company saying hi to each other?” one user responds.
“Who is in charge of marketing? I’d like to file a cringe complaint,” another replies.
The one thing that could possibly be weirder than this would be to use the ‘poke’ button on all of your family members.
Just waiting for them to post tweets to the gram then screenshot it and post it on facebook. https://t.co/qCNY9zw84S— Ryan Downie (@RyanDownie) January 15, 2020

Y'all acting like you reply to support requests here 😅 My friend lost a 50K follower account on Insta and support has ghosted her for years.— Scott Buscemi (@scottbuscemi) January 16, 2020
