This Twitter Back-And-Forth Between Nebraska And The New York Jets Is Hilarious

When team accounts engage in friendly banter on Twitter, things usually become pretty entertaining. That's what this afternoon's back-and-forth between Nebraska football and the New York Jets. 

It all started when Nebraska posted this "Huskers in the NFL" tweet and didn't include an updated photo of New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa. You can see Enunwa wearing No. 82 at the top of the graphic even though he changed his number to 81 last season.

The Jets took it upon themselves to issue a small correction.

The Huskers responded to the Jets' editorial suggestion with good, old-fashioned harmless sarcasm.

This is fantastic work by the people running each account. Come on, sports media relations/PR people, this is gold. We need more of this!
