Welcome to the #Twitterdome this week's fight is the #ChickenWar!
On August 12, Popeyes took to the twitter-sphere to announce their new chicken sandwich. What resulted was a twitter war between Popeyes, Chick-fil-a, and, of course, Wendy's (the Fast Food Ruler of Twitter).

About a week after Popeyes tweeted the released of their chicken sandwich, Chick-fil-a gave us happy home feels by posting this tweet highlighting their original chicken sandwich with a heart. ❤
Bun + Chicken + Pickles = all the ❤️ for the original. pic.twitter.com/qBAIIxZx5v— Chick-fil-A, Inc. (@ChickfilA) August 19, 2019
Later, Popeyes reacted to Chick-fil-a's post and the internet exploded. The post prompted a massive internet interaction between fans of the Popeyes and Chick-fil-a chains over who has the best chicken sandwich.

In response to the twitter-sphere losing it, Wendy’s decided to get in on the fun posting this in response to the #ChickenWars.
Y’all out here fighting about which of these fools has the second best chicken sandwich. pic.twitter.com/4v9RJFgy0T— WENDY'S SPICY NUGGETS ARE BACK!!! (@Wendys) August 19, 2019
Classic Wendy's... Popeyes had this response to Wendy's entering the arena:
Sounds like someone just ate one of our biscuits. Cause y’all looking thirsty. https://t.co/89eqI5vk2z— Popeyes Chicken (@PopeyesChicken) August 20, 2019
Naturally, Wendy's came back swinging in their classic Wendy's fashion:
lol, guess that means the food’s as dry as the jokes https://t.co/aX3XnRunNW— WENDY'S SPICY NUGGETS ARE BACK!!! (@Wendys) August 20, 2019
