Rihanna shades Beyonce with sly Twitter liking game

The game of social media sniping is a subtle one, and Rihanna is a master.

Case in point: Earlier today the "Diamonds" singer threw some shade Beyonce's way with a very quick and very subtle Twitter move: She liked and then quickly un-liked a fan's message about her track outperforming "Formation," moving almost fast enough for no one to even notice -- almost.

The tweet in question -- posted in response to one from Rihanna herself -- read, "The fact that 'Desperado' is higher on the Bubbling Under chart than a single performed to a global audience," referring to Beyonce's Super Bowl half-time show.

And accompanying the tweet? A photo of Jay-Z looking not terribly pleased. Ball's in your court, Beyonce.
