On Tuesday, a cookie tweeted a question that caused theaters to collectively gasp.
AMC Theatres responded with a tweet that has since been shared more than 300 times. (Oreo’s tweet has been shared 26 times.)

The trick to make sure this type of response is seen by more followers: Add a period (or any other character) before the @reply — “.@Oreo We hope not!” for example. It looks a bit awkward, but is widely accepted among Twitter users. (I’m not so sure about Oreo-flavored popcorn though.)
