Burger King Might Be Offering to Pay off Student Loans

Yesterday morning, Burger King posted a very short tweet saying, quote, "Got student loans? What's [your> cashtag?" A cashtag is your username on Cash App, which is one of those apps where people can make payments to each other. It's like Venmo, PayPal.Me, and the rest. Burger King hasn't said a word about what they meant, but tens of thousands of people have responded to the tweet so far hoping it's BK deciding to pay off everyone's student loans. Of course, Burger King is known for its trolling marketing strategy lately, although they mostly troll McDonald's. So if this is a joke it could backfire in a nasty way.
