A petty dispute between two Penn State roommates on Twitter has gone viral after thousands of people picked up one of their messages.

Jessica Taylor discovered that her roommate, named only as Nikki, had been posting a series of tweets complaining about her, according to the Daily Mail.

“Today I found all the subtweets my roommate has made about me, so I printed them out and hung them up in our dorm,” Taylor wrote in the message which went viral, the Mail reported.

The tweets included complaints from Nikki that her room situation was a horror show and criticism of Taylor for allegedly smoking marijuana.

Taylor then posted an exchange of text messages.

“Yeah I shouldn't have tweeted that but I did so that's that but this is going to be real uncomfortable if you keep feeding me fire,” Nikki wrote.

The argument continued, with Taylor accusing Nikki of drinking in the room and of calling the police on her.

“You shouldn't have had weed in the room so stop coming at me for being a b***h. I'm a b***h I know but I'm not doing anything illegal in our room,” Nikki added.

“I didn't call the police so stop saying that. Weed is illegal don't have it in the room again or I will tell the RA [Resident Adviser] again,” she wrote.

Taylor said Nikki is currently sleeping elsewhere because of the dispute. Taylor has also won support from several people who posted comments.

“Apparently texting is petty to you, but subtweeting me a total of six times isn’t?” Taylor wrote to Nikki.

“May I remind you I didn't do s**t to you and you declared you hated me two weeks in,” she added.

She also refused to accept Nikki’s complaint about her smoking.

“I can have whatever I want on my side of the room and that is my risk and my problem, not yours because it doesn't affect you in any way,” Taylor wrote.

Earlier this month, a similar incident occurred at UCLA when a dispute between freshmen over the furniture in their dorm went viral, ABC reported. It was triggered by one student sending a lengthy list of demands to her future roommates. But rather than replying, one of the girls decided to post the list to Twitter.
