We’ve chronicled how truTV’s social media accounts have become feisty over the past couple of years, usually hitting back when people complain that they can’t find the network when it comes time for the NCAA Tournament. It began last year when truTV started to raise awareness and for the most part, the campaign was a success.

But one particular account, Pick Six Previews, a college football website which uses a lot of graphical data, tweeted out a graph this weekend on truTV’s viewership which drops after the NCAA Tournament.

Of course, that wasn’t going to go unnoticed by truTV. It responded in kind:

The link then showed this mythical chart with a bird. Not just any bird, mind you:

The tweet certainly shocked Pick Six Previews:

And again, truTV responded:

So for a Saturday late night exchange, this was quite fun while it lasted. Pick Six Previews gave the graph, but truTV went below the belt with the middle finger. At least truTV hasn’t deleted the tweets and is keeping them up tor now. This was certainly an inteesting Twitter fight albeit a brief one.
