As Twitter continues to be one big ball of dysfunction, we needed one last thing — tampon talk. Feminine hygiene brands Tampax and Always engaged in a weird conversation about how up close and personal they get during that time of the month.
Tampax started the chaos with the following tweet:
“You’re in their DMs. We’re in them. We are not the same.” The shocking tweet is a play on the viral “You are in their direct messages …” internet meme. The original meme was meant to differentiate yourself when romantically approaching someone. But Tampax thinks it’s deeper than that.
The tweet has possibly been sitting on the shelf for some time. However, with the current state of Twitter, it seems someone at the tampon company took a chance.
The company references the platform’s current crisis in its next tweet, writing, “Refused to let Twitter shut down before we shared this tweet.”
Their brand’s idea of a last hoorah has gained over 306k likes and 40k retweets.
Not letting their counterpart have all the fun, Always “inserted” themselves into the fun.
With the ultimate side eye, Always tweeted, “how long have you been saving this one.”
