Despite their differences, two adorable 4-year-old girls who share the same birthday, and therefore think they are twins, are taking over the internet.

Zuri Copeland and Jia Sarnicola are best friends, but became upset when others questioned whether or not the two were twins.

According to a tweet posted by Zuri's sister, the girls had an argument with some other girls who said the two couldn't possibly be twins because they had different skin colors.

"My sister and her bestfriend think that they’re twins because they have the same birthday and this was the outcome," the tweet said.

The girls responded saying, "you don't know anything, we are twins because we have the same birthday."

Ashley Sarnicola, Jia's mom, also posted about the interaction on Facebook.

"At a bday party Jia was crying after another little girl said to her, ‘there is no way you and Zuri are twins you don’t have the same color skin!’” Jia said, “You don’t know anything, we are twins because we have the same birthday and the same soul."

Twins or not, the posts on social media have garnered positive and loving responses.
