Blockbuster Tweeted for the First Time in 6 Years


Blockbuster is back...on social media and the nostalgia is oh-so-real.

After a six-year absence, the beloved one-time video rental giant appeared on Twitter with a simple message that said, "Just checking in." 

Savvy Twitter users figured out that the whole thing was a publicity stunt and they were correct. Airbnb teamed up with the last remaining store in Oregon to make a 90s style living room. 

The Twitterverse didn't let the stunt slide at all and began roasting the one-time popular rental giant. 

Remember the good ol' Blockbuster days?
