Game of Thrones fans raging as official Twitter page shares cryptic message
Too soon, guys.
Earlier this year, Game of Thrones came to an end.
It was a bitter sweet to the wildly popular series that captured the hearts and minds of people all around the world - and the anger of millions when the final season eventually aired.
Although not on par with those that had come before it, season eight wasn't all bad. It had some key moments.
Like Jon Snow realising the woman he loves is a monster and also related to him. And, eh, some other bits.
But no matter how you feel about season eight, chances are - as a fan - you're not going to be all that delighted by the Game of Thrones official Twitter page sharing a cryptic "Winter is coming" tweet.
Why? Because fans can be a particularly volatile bunch - and for some reason, this appears to have rubbed a lot of them up the wrong way.
Winter is coming.

There's the original tweet above, in all its glory.
Seemingly innocuous, right?
Well, no, apparently no - because a lot of people took it upon themselves to hijack this very tweet and complain about how much they hated season eight.
Such is the internet.
Thanks for reminding me how bad season 8 was.

Not at all ideal.
This comes after HBO confirmed that a prequel to Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon, had indeed been confirmed.
The new series, which will be set 300 years before the events of the aforementioned show, will tell the story of the Targaryens in Westeros, long before the Mad King, Daenerys's reign, and her eventual fall from grace.
Season one will have 10 episodes and will be co-produced by Game of Thrones author George RR Martin, as well as Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik.
