Fast food rivals
As mentioned, almost all fast food companies have created new chicken dishes to compete with each other. With the exception of Wendy’s, most people have adopted significantly different strategies. Recently, Wendy’s Twitter accounts tried to make their name by endlessly ridiculing McDonald’s, Popeye, and others releasing new foods.
“I must have scraped off all the BK leftovers and hit the mcprice tag,” Wendy tweeted. These tweets seem to divide fast food fans, but they haven’t stopped them from becoming viral.

Sadly, they will, as McDonald’s revealed that it is a limited-time offer.
