    Former Vice President Joe Biden has chosen a bit awkward – if not heartfelt – way to congratulate former President Barack Obama on Best Friends Day on Twitter. The tweet has sparked mixed reactions from Twitterians.

    The former vice president and current presidential candidate Joe Biden went soft on Twitter when he congratulated former President Obama, whom he considers his personal friend, with Best Friends Day.

    ​The tweet, accompanied by a photo of a cute friendship bracelet decorated with the words “Joe” and “Barack,” was, however, met with a dose of scepticism from Twitter users.

    Many users expressed their impression that the heartfelt tweet was supposed to boost Biden’s ratings using Obama’s popularity among US voters.

    ​Some commented that using a little girl’s bracelet was somewhat awkward for the 76-year-old Biden congratulating 57-year-old Obama.

    ​Others noticed that one of the jewels used in the bracelet looked like a slice of pizza, hinting at the notorious Pizzagate conspiracy theory.

    ​Some, however, found the post genuinely heartwarming and cute.
