WASHINGTON, Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Hillary Clinton issued a little Twitter offense during Sunday night's Super Bowl match up between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. The big game aired on Fox just hours before conservative Fox News host Bill O'Reilly sat down for a testy pre-game interview with President Barack Obama.

Clinton, who's often on the receiving end of Fox News' barbs, tweeted an unusually cheeky football-themed joke at the network's expense.

The former secretary of state's jab was one of the more popular tweets of Super Bowl Sunday, netting 48,600 tweets at the time of posting.

Obama made a similar dig during his O'Reilly interview.

"These kinds of things keep on surfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them," the president said of O'Reilly's questions about last year's IRS scandal.
