Popeyes Chicken announces chicken sandwich: Inside the epic Twitter battle that ensues
HOUSTON – Popeyes Chicken announced a new chicken sandwich last Monday, and to say there has been some hullabaloo online about it would be an understatement.
Popeye’s posted a photo of their chicken sandwich and an online battle ensued between fast food heavyweights Chick-fil-A and Wendy’s, both known for their social media and marketing prowess.
Here are some of the spicy tweets passed between chains:
