Twitter. It's the constant source for entertaining bits of information and feud's between celebrities. Recently the latter has been in the spotlight with Azealia Banks' racist and homophobic comments, but yesterday two of electronic music's biggest names in Diplo and DJ Snake aimed their tweets at another superstar, David Guetta, over producing a track that they seem to think copied their style.

This recent beef between EDM producers is oddly similar to Azealia's issues with Zayn Malik, they don't like when someone isn't original. DJ Snake first called out Guetta, describing the new track as a "Fake Lean On" and then Diplo chimed in expressing how he hopes everyone realizes he strives to be innovative while Guetta just bites off everyone else.

Below is a recap of the tweets, which have since been deleted. You can also listen to both tracks and see how Guetta's 'This One's For You' measures up to Major Lazer and DJ Snake's hit. There are some similarities in style, but it's hard to say whether or not Guetta intentionally wanted to copy 'Lean On'. Listen for yourself below.
