“Today we’re seen as a social media company, but in our DNA, we are a company that builds technology to connect people. And the metaverse is the next frontier just like social networking was when we got started,” he shared.
Since The Matrix tweet was posted, hundreds of people have offered up responses praising the account for it’s well-timed, socially relevant quick wit. “This is the movie marketing I f*cking missed, god bless this team,” one viewer wrote.
“Where’s the green pill where you list be homeless and stretch out across the sidewalk comfortably knowing the truth buy enjoying pizza?” another Twitter user joked. One thing’s for sure, the genius stunt has certainly got people talking about The Matrix Resurrections, which is set to hit theatres on December 22nd.
