Whoever was working the official New York Metropolis authorities Twitter feed on Friday started the Fourth of July vacation weekend in an uncommon means, by taking a seemingly out-of-nowhere shot at Cleveland.
“A dark day in New York Metropolis continues to be higher than a sunny day in Cleveland,” the federal government’s official account wrote alongside a picture of the Massive Apple’s iconic skyline.
It’s unclear why the account focused Cleveland with the publish. Some commenters speculated it was in response to the billboards that appeared in New York in March urging companies to relocate to Ohio.
However the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, which operates in Cleveland, didn’t take the tweet mendacity down.
“Doesn’t NYC have a sewer utility for this type of crap,” the district fired again, later lightheartedly requesting to “file a report” with New York Metropolis Environmental Safety.
If I labored for the Cleveland vacationer bureau I might see this tweet as an enormous win. New York Metropolis has introduced they see The Cleve as a rival. https://t.co/6kNGdZBeiM
