Hearts tease Hibs on Twitter after misjudged '5-1' post
Hearts have poked fun at Hibs on Twitter after their Edinburgh rivals had a little social media gaffe on Friday afternoon.
The official club account reacted to a supporter tweeting that he’d purchased six Easter Road season tickets for the 2021/22 campaign with a .GIF of Austin Powers character Mini-Me.
Though such responses are typically standard practice on club accounts, it overlooked the character raising five fingers on one hand and just one on another.
This echoes a long-running meme of Hearts supporters, who flash ‘5-1’ hand-signs as a way of reminding their Capital neighbours of the score from the all-Edinburgh Scottish Cup final in 2012.
Hibs quickly deleted the tweet but not before the screenshot was widely shared.
The Hearts official club account couldn’t help but getting involved in the fun. They responded with a picture of the winning manager from 2012, Paulo Sergio, alongside the screenshot and a caption which read: “Because sometimes you can’t hit that delete button quick enough.”
