The Olacabs And Uber Twitter War Just Escalated To The Next Level

Someone get the popcorn.

Things died down until recently, when a customer pointed out that a new Olacabs campaign seemed to have a few similarities with one Uber had already launched.

Twitter: @ananyag26

Both campaigns allow customers to get free drinks at certain bars upon producing a ride receipt.

The reactions to the tiff were varied, with some taking Uber's side for being the original one.

Fuckin Ola which lifted the entire model of UBER is talking back. Sharam bhi nahi aati

@Olacabs You've practically built yourselves on Uber's existence, and yet the arrogance. @Uber_India

Some encouraged the friendly trash talk.

@Olacabs @Uber_India what's a competition without some fun! #goodgoing

Others did not.

I want to grab em both by the ears and twist really hard. Go stand in a corner, both of you.

Can't tell if brands or bengalis #ThatStereotypeAgain https://t.co/9tEY1v1JQ6

Uber and Ola sound exactly like my roommates fighting over Bobby pins. https://t.co/qJd5qPunmD

Mostly, it just gave people a chance to get in their own jibes.

Meru was about to join this conversation but driver got delayed they're extremely sorry for inconvenience

Auto rickshaw guy was going to join this conversation but he didn't because "waha se vaapas bhada nahi milega"

I don't understand why are @Olacabs and @Uber_India fighting. They both charge the same! 😝 wonder what is TabCab upto!
