So. Here is a typical tweet by @Thomas_Reacts, a reaction account based on Thomas the Tank Engine stills and GIFs.
But HERE is a tweet by @ThomasReacts_ (note the different underscore), which is NOT the same account.
...as opposed to @ThomasReacts_.
Got that? Good.
Anyway, two nights ago, @Thomas_Reacts started firing shots at @ThomasReacts_, addressing the account's owner.
@Thomas_Reacts was claiming that its jokes were being recycled by @ThomasReacts_.
And then the drama really escalated. Sadly @ThomasReacts_ has deleted its side of the row, but this is how the start of it played out.
And @Thomas_Reacts kept firing shots.
And more shots.
People were somewhat divided on the whole issue.
There was also a whole row about tweeting images of the original row and whether it was theft to do so, but it's probably best not to go into that in any detail.
BuzzFeed reached out to both accounts for comment. And then an idea formed.
They agreed to meet in a private space online and thrash out their differences.
Whereupon this happened.
As per the rules of engagement, the details of the discussion must be kept private. However, this was how it concluded, about 20 minutes later.
TFW you've just successfully mediated between two Thomas the Tank Engine reaction accounts.
