The markets may be happy that at long last a deal has been agreed between Greece and its creditors, but on social media the environment is rather more frosty.
As the details of the three-year bailout emerge - a deal that European Council president Donald Tusk said had "strict conditions" - the FTSE, Cac and Dax all jumped.
Simultaneously the hashtag #ThisIsACoup, which had begun circulating over the weekend, was the top trend this morning as thousands of Greek people (and sympathisers) across Europe and the rest of the world took to Twitter to slam the terms of the deal.
Some said they felt the agreement, reached after hours of talks throughout the night, was the end of Europe as we knew it.
Others said the deal amounted to a form of aggression from Germany that they likened to the world wars. And mafia.
Either way, no one thinks the Greek people come out of this deal well.
