#BankWars: Nigerian Banks battle it out on Twitter



It was #BankWars today on Twitter!

It started with a tweet from Sterling Bank, not-so-subtly shading 4 others: Union Bank, First Bank, GT Bank and Access Bank.

It was a very simple tweet, the bank writing: “Shoot for the moon, become a star – it’s the least you deserve. Welcome to #SterlingBank ?

The image attached to the tweet, however, had all the shade.

They unleashed … something, with the other banks coming for them, hard.

Access Bank was savage, writing:

We will travel on an imaginary rocket too, if we were a one-customer Microfinance Bank; but with ten million customers and counting, we rather bring the galaxy to you! #YouAreWorthIt #TakeTomorrow #KnowYourElders

Union Bank seemed even more upset, coming for Sterling again, again, and again.

First Bank had fewer words, but was no less caustic, characteristic of the elderly.

FCMB watched from the sidelines, waiting to be called upon.

GT Bank, however, was a no-show. Mature or scared? We don’t know.

What bank do you think won the war?

    Sterling posted on Friday and it took other banks 16 hrs to respond.

      16hrs to respond is a life time on blogosphere. All the clap backs were dead on arrival. It took too long to respond.

    This is refreshing, what comes next? An actual battle with gladiators adorned in the bank logos they represent? That’d be fun.?

    FCMB get sense, no need to talk if you have nothing nice to say.
    As for GTbank, they should not reply abeg, before they will go and deduct ‘clap back service fee’ from my account.
