A little Twitter marketing turned into a battle between fast food restaurants.
Wendy’s started by promoting its “4 for $4 meal.”

Then Burger King’s social media team took notice, and was able to offer a better deal.
“5 for $4, because 5 is better than 4,” it said.

But Wendy’s wasn’t happy with the response, so it took a dig at Burger King when asked what made its deal better.
“Edible food,” it said.

People had different responses to the tweet.
“@Wendys may think they have edible food, but I will take a @BurgerKing #whopper ANYDAY over a baconator,” said one Twitter user.
“DUDE. When you come @Wendys you BEST come correct. See the epic @Burgerking fail,” added another.
“The only thing the @Wendys vs. @BurgerKing feud makes me do is think about how much I love spicy chicken nuggets. lol,” added yet another.
