The Twitter account of the U.S. Open tennis event obliterated one Twitter consumer’s declare that tennis isn’t a sport.
The trade between the event and the consumer started after the consumer, @seahawksfan2314, commented below a SportsCenter video.
“Not a sport,” stated the consumer whose title and Twitter bio describes him as a fan of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks.
The U.S. Open got here to the protection of the game with a viral tweet mocking the consumer’s favourite soccer staff and its quarterback.
“not a sport says the individual about to look at 17 video games of Drew Lock at QB,” the U.S. Open replied.
The tweet got here on the expense of the Seahawks, who didn’t make the NFL playoffs final season, and Lock.
The consumer later begged their followers to save them from getting “ratioed” – the act of a reply to a tweet getting extra likes than the tweet above it – however failed within the quest.
The U.S. Open joked that it “didn’t” anticipate the tweet to explode and referenced the reply by including “positively a sport” to its bio.
The main tennis event, on Saturday, continued by tweeting memes referencing the comeback.
