The whirlwind Seth Rogen and Rob Schneider Twitter feud is over almost as quickly as it started - and the resolution is all thanks to James Franco.

Rogen, 35, was left perplexed Saturday after discovering that comedian and actor Schneider, 53, had inexplicably blocked him from viewing his posts on Twitter.

"The Interview" actor posted a screenshot of Schneider's blocked account and a simple caption that read, "What the f---?!," then later posted a second screenshot, this time of a zoomed-in photo of an ad for Schneider's Netflix comedy "Real Rob," a scripted show that stars his real-life wife and daughter.

"Why does he seem so appalled to be sitting with his own family?" Rogen wrote of the photo, which features the former "Saturday Night Live" cast member holding his daughter and making a confused-looking face.

The virtual feud escalated as several fellow actors chimed in with some possible reasons for Schneider's sudden cold shoulder.

Jason Priestly was quick to bring up the "stereotypically nice Canadian" card, as Rogen hails from Vancouver.

"What did you say to him Seth??" Priestly wrote to Rogen on Twitter. "Couldn't have been that bad…you're a Canadian man!"

Rogen responded with "I honestly have no idea." Later, comedians Kumail Nanjiani and Ike Barinholtz offered their two cents, too, with Barinholtz joking that Rogen had blocked him on Twitter, and Nanjiani filling him on the virtual fight's drama.

Eventually, Schneider himself piped up, possibly forgetting he had blocked Rogen as he penned a note to the "Pineapple Express" actor. The short message promised Rogen that his access to Schneider's Twitter account would be restored if Rogen would be willing to stage an introduction to his frequent comedy costar James Franco.

Though it's unclear if a meeting between Franco and Schneider ever actually occurred - the tweets appeared just several hours apart, so it's unlikely - Schneider ultimately congratulated Rogen on his official unblocking.

"Dear Seth, you are officially UNBLOCKED! Go celebrate 2Nite with some close friends," wrote Schneider, who has never worked with Rogen or Franco. "But be on your best behavior from now on! ILOVED"TheEnd."

The "Benchwarmers" actor also praised Franco, and thanked Rogen for the alleged introduction.

"Dear Seth, And thanks for hooking me up with Franco. You're right, he is dreamy!" Schneider wrote.

Rogen has yet to respond to the bizarre messages on Twitter.

Schneider's blocking of Rogen on Twitter comes just one week after President Donald Trump did the same to author Stephen King.

King, who has long used the social media platform to air his grievances with the Trump administration, revealed he'd been blocked with a post on June 13 that read, "Trump has blocked me from reading his tweets. I may have to kill myself."

And just as Nanjiani promised to fill Barinholtz in on the tweets he was missing, "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling vowed the same, telling King, "I still have access. I'll DM them to you."
