Greetings aliens, Canadians come in tweets.

As the Huffington Post Canada previously reported, the International Raelian Movement asked the Canadian government to build an embassy for aliens so that they can, well, visit and conduct extraterrestrial political business.

John Baird, Canada's foreign affairs minister, responded to the group on Thursday with a tweet that no doubt shattered the hearts of many aliens on Twitter.

Deepak Obhrai, a Tory MP and parliamentary secretary to the foreign affairs minister, provided a swift response.

The group says they have almost 90,000 members worldwide, concentrated primarily in South Korea, Japan and Canada.

The Raelians applied for tax-exempt status in Canada in the 1990s. The request was refused, just not by John Baird's Twitter account.
