"We're more than two hours into the show and Donald Trump hasn't tweeted once," Kimmel said. "I'm starting to get worried about him." He proceeded to take out his phone, project its display onto the big screen, and tweet The Donald to check if he was okay.

"Hey @realDonaldTrump u up?" Kimmel asked in his first tweet. He then added a follow-up: "#Merylsayshi." (FWIW, the first tweet has more than 100,000 retweets in less than 5 minutes.)

This was far from the night's first Trump diss—Kimmel dedicated a large chunk of his opening monologue to mocking the president for calling Meryl Streep "overrated." White House press secretary Sean Spicer did say Trump had better things to do this evening than hate-tweet the Oscars—now, we wait and see whether he can resist this open Twitter provocation.
