Last night, as it became apparent that anti-immigration candidate Donald Trump was poised to take the presidency, Canada decided to make the following statement on Twitter:

In Canada, immigrants are encouraged to bring their cultural traditions with them and share them with their fellow citizens.

First of all, Canada has it's own Twitter account? That's weird.

Second, daaaaammmmmn. You trying to rub something in, Canada?

Twitter user Jason Bowman was the first to catch the perceived slight.

For the blissfully uninitiated, subtweeting is when you tweet out a message mocking or criticizing another party without directly calling them out by name. It's the height of passive-aggression, which is why this Canadian responded to Bowman's tweet that, in Canada, "passive aggression is our way."

Others were more optimistic about the tweet's intention, suggesting that the tweet was an invitation.

Considering Canada's immigration website crashed as America's votes were tallied, it might be hard for everyone to take Canada up on the offer, but that's not going to stop many Americans from trying anyway.

Still, the timing of Canada's pro-immigration brag was not coincidental. It's safe to say Canada sees themselves as above us for more reasons than just how we appear on the map.
