The first episode of Mr. Robot’s hotly anticipated second series made a surprise appearance on social media last night in the sort of move we should have expected from a show that follows a gang of hacktivists.

The season premiere appeared online three days early, just after a masked figure interrupted a live Facebook Q&A with its creators. “You deserve something new, something unexpected, something you’ve never seen before,” the figure said, before playing the episode for people watching live.

Soon after, the show’s Twitter account shared a schedule of when people could catch some of the action on other social networks.  

The tweets, snapchats and YouTube videos were deleted just hours after they were uploaded, meaning there was no trace of the stunt to be seen by 3.30am GMT.

No trace, except for a whole cocktail of emotions on Twitter…

Some people were freaking out…

Others were grateful…

And the rest were just plain angry they’d missed it…
