While Iceberg Research posted its short call for AMC stock on Twitter, it doesn’t appear to be ready to deal with the massive support the stock has on the platform. It limited replies so that only those it follows or mentions can chime in under its Tweet.

Even so, that isn’t stopping AMC Apes from commenting on the short call. Plenty of them are Quote Retweeting Iceberg Research’s post. A few examples of those are below.

I find it pretty hilarious this is the only post where they don’t allow replies. It’s almost like they knew apes would drag them 😂 https://t.co/ZuArxRJMIK

That's what you don't understand. This was never about fundamentals. It was about saying greedy fuckers like you can't just destroy a beloved company and industry just because there's hard times. You're fucking vultures and we're not going anywhere, so keep flying. https://t.co/8UlW947lFW
