Twitter takes shots at Instagram on their own platform

Twitter has decided to step up its troll game on the company’s official Instagram account, calling out the photo and video-based social media site over nabbed screenshots.

On September 4, 2019 Twitter began posting screenshots of tweets on its Instagram page. The first of which was a tweet that reads, “Instagram is literally just screenshots of tweets and I think @Twitter should call them out.” 

Surprisingly, Twitter obliged, and indeed called out the Facebook-owned platform, and also updated their bio on the site to just read “Screenshots of Tweets.” 

Instagram has over one billion users.

The other posts appear to be generic tweets screengrabbed and uploaded. It’s unclear if Twitter asked the users for their permission before using their tweets on Instagram.

Meanwhile, Instagram’s official Twitter account hasn’t answered back. But we wouldn’t be shocked to see the platform strike back in some capacity, after all, Twitter is mocking them on their own platform. 

The troll has generated a lot of buzz and support from the community, on both social medias.

One Twitter user posted “Twitter has joined Instagram by sharing screenshots of tweets. Fair play.” 

“Twitter is throwing shade at Instagram on its own platform and I am totally here for this,” Wriggy wrote. 

“@Twitter trolling instagram on its own platform is the best thing you’ll see today,” Florian Megy chimed in. 

Twitter was founded in 2006 while Instagram launched four years later in 2010 and has reached 1 billion active users.

While the two sites do cater to two different audiences with the latter being acquired by Facebook, both have remained key components of internet culture since their inception with no signs of that stopping.

Logan Paul has risen to fame as one of the most prominent YouTubers and online personalities of the 21st Century. His success brings financial rewards, and his growing exotic car collection reflects this. 

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

His Polaris slingshot is one of his less practical vehicles.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
