Twitter is weird, man.

Sometimes you’re tweeting a dumb joke about the 14th man on the Sacramento Kings and it turns out he searches his name, an act to slyly favorite mean tweets about him not being good as if to say, “Oh yeah, I saw this.”

Those types of interactions happen way too often on the website, where you never expect your favorite athletes or celebrities to interact and then, wham, there they are.

But, to that point, usually it’s someone more inconsequential and random like Malachi Richardson.

That takes us to Wednesday afternoon.

Suns Twitter Ring of Honor member @sreekyshooter tweeted a gag based off the Suns’ statement for selling their G League affiliate, tying in a callback to the time owner Robert Sarver put goats in former general manager Ryan McDonough’s office.

Funny enough and what we’ve come to expect from Sreekar, sure, but then from the top rope out of nowhere to land the crushing blow comes a fresh account with the handle @McDNBA.

Surely that’s not him, right?

Well, Bleacher Report’s Howard Beck confirmed it, as did McDonough’s podcast partner Brian Scalabrine.

The thought of someone sending Sreekar’s dumb joke to McDonough and him thinking not only to make his own joke, but to make his first tweet that joke in a way to break his mostly 22-month silence on those matters since getting fired, is baffling.

So, yeah, Twitter is weird. Great debut showing from McDonough, and nice to see he can have fun with it.
