KFC jibe at McDonald's with Trump parody tweet

On Wednesday KFC's UK and Ireland Twitter account posted a parody tweet boasting its burger was larger than those at McDonald's. The post mirrored the style of a tweet by the US president aimed at North Korea's leader, who claimed the nuclear button was always on his desk. KFC's tweet was shared more than 180,000 times and liked more than 475,000 times within 48 hours. In October 2017, eagle-eyed Mike Edgett highlighted the 11 people followed by KFC in a tweet which has since been retweeted more than 300,000 times. Pizza Hut deleted the offending tweet and apologised but by then the hashtag #I am boycotting Pizza Hut had been used more than 48,000 times.
