LONDON — There are few things in this world more entertaining than a perfectly-timed Twitter burn.
Just ask J.K. Rowling. She knows.
The thing is, though, the fine art of shutting someone down in 140 characters isn’t just limited to humans. Brands can — and frequently do — get involved as well.
We’ve put together some examples of British brands who decided they simply weren’t going to tolerate any more ribbing on social media…
1. This no-nonsense comeback from Virgin Trains.
2. This football-themed KO from Tesco.
3. This blunt Facebook rebuttal from the BBC.
4. This sick burn from Tesco Mobile.
Worst thing about me mother not answering her phone, is her voicemail reminding me that she’s on the absolute poverty Tesco Mobile.

5. And this one.
When you call someone and it goes through to their Tesco Mobile Voicemail… LOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

@DinosaurEl That’s a shame, but hopefully it’ll teach you to read the labels before buying something..?😉

9. Finally, this solid comeback from UK phone network O2.
