Beyoncé recently liked her first tweet ever, and fans on Twitter are losing it.
Queen B follows only ten people on Twitter. But, unless daughter Blue Ivy got her hands on mommy’s phone, we have serious reasons to believe that the singer spends more time on social media than she’d like people to know.

The tweet that made Beyoncé cackle is a meme posted by @sagemyster that shows an old image of Nas staring at his laptop screen with the caption "how they upload the album so fast, yo?” Since the contentious like user sage has updated his Twitter profile with the caption “I made Beyoncé laugh”.
The diva quickly unliked the post, however, fans had already taken screenshots of the historic like and promptly shared them all over the internet. “AYO, am I being trolled or is this Beyoncé?” @sagemyster posted, tweeting a screenshot.
An endless string of comments followed with fans scrambling to find a logical explanation as to what this puzzling like-unlike situation might mean, if not that Beyoncé was sending some shade to Nas.
But was Beyoncé’s like a slip of the finger? Probably not. And most importantly, was that even Beyoncé's real Twitter account? We have so many questions!
Sis. Nas released his album like yesterday. Bey and Jay dropped theirs and overshined him.— Ash (@yonceduckworth) June 18, 2018
A like on Twitter isn’t earth-shattering news, even if it concerns Beyoncé and Jay Z. However, as Nas released his Nasir album on June 15th, there might be some background juice in this story. Executively produced by Kanye West, the album almost coincides with the release of Beyoncé and Jay Z’s new album Everything Is Love, which dropped only 24 hours after Nas' release. And here comes a flashback of the rap scene’s fiercest beef: the memorable, decade-old feud between Jay Z and Nas.
However, the rumors were dissolved quickly by TMZ when they revealed that there was no throwback to 2001, as Nas was said to be taking the high road. The rapper from Queens has put the past behind him and doesn’t feel the least bit intimidated by The Carters (which is what Bey and Jay are referred to as on the album).
This aside, we're still wondering if Queen B spends hours stalking friends and frenemies on Twitter while pretending she has no time for social media?
What do you think? Was Beyoncé trying to shade Nas on Twitter, or is she just messing with our heads?
