April Fools’ Day has come and gone, and that means you can now trust what companies post on social media. As always, some companies get crafty in their pranks. Here’s a few of them.

Duolingo is an app that helps its users learn new languages by sending push notifications. For April Fools’ Day, the app decided to take that a step further by introducing its logo to “follow you” around all day to remind you to practice. It also doesn’t help that the bird has three different moods — encouraging, disappointed and passive aggressive — that you wouldn’t
