( CNN) Twitter explodedFriday night and into Saturday after Donald Trump alleged that he was offered Time magazine’s title of “Person of the Year” and Time responded by challenging the President’s account of events.
Trump tweeted that the publication wanted him “to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot” before confirming he had won the award. Trump would have none of that, tweeting: “I said likely is not good enough and took a pass.”
A short time later, however, Time responded on Twitter by challenging Trump’s account, “The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. Time does not comment on our option until publication, which is December 6. ”
