There's been a new social media ripple about Donald Trump - and it's not about his upcoming inauguration. 

No, it's about the shape that some of the fireworks released at his pre-inauguration ceremony last night, which seemed to not spell out 'USA' as much as they spelt out 'USR'.

The apparent acronym is not too far from USSR, the initials of the old Soviet Union - America's mortal enemy during the Cold War and the forerunner to the modern Russia. 

Unsurprisingly, the tweets began flooding in within minutes of the pictures being circulated. Some claimed that Russia had 'hacked' the fireworks display, others claimed it was a message to Vladimir Putin from Trump. 

Either way, we're all amused by it.
