Carl's Jr. did not immediately respond to request for comment from BuzzFeed News about the endeavor.

However, Jeff Jenkins, Chief Marketing officer for Carl's Jr. and Hardee's, spoke to USA Today about the tweets."This is about generating a conversation around a partnership,'' he said. "The tweets are obviously a start to try and see where the dialogue goes … have a lot of fun with it, and see if they find the spirit of it as fun as we do.’’
