Twitter can be a cruel place, as Microsoft's Xbox recently found out when the new Xbox Series S design was the subject of relentless mocking. With mountains of memes piling in comparing the console to a washing machine, fast food order station, speaker and oven hob (to name only some), it's fair to say the aesthetic tickled the creative humour of many expert photo editors.

Xbox took it on the chin, responding with a masterclass in conveying brand wit and personality – showing it is a company willing to laugh at itself, and winning many fans (including us) in the process.
