Tree Hill Ravens stick together — especially when it comes to cheerleaders and BFFs, Peyton Sawyer and Brooke Davis!

Though it’s been five years since One Tree Hill ended, Hilarie Burton and Sophia Bush are still as close as ever, and Twitter can prove it.

On Tuesday (May 24), Burton (who played artsy and angsty Peyton) officially joined Twitter and she of course dedicated her first tweet to her forever friend, Bush (who played Peyton’s sassy bestie, Brooke).

“1st tweet HAS to be to thank this golden woman – for being my defender against imposters and my voice for years. Love you @SophiaBush !!!” Burton tweeted along with a Peyton and Brooke hug gif.

Seriously, can we all just take a moment to say “aww,” because this is too cute!

What’s even better than the sweet gif is that Burton gave a shout out to Bush for always having her back on social media. This is the first time that the actress has ever had any social media accounts — yes, really — and Bush was always shutting down all the imposters.

Back in 2016, Bush even tweeted about her longtime friend and told the world to let her have her privacy.

“Hilarie Burton does NOT have ANY social media. Anyone claiming to be her is violating her wish for privacy. Report!” Bush tweeted.

If that’s not true friendship, what is?

Plus, Bush’s reply back to Burton’s first tweet shows that their friendship isn’t changing anytime soon.

“Love you sister,” Bush tweeted in response, before welcoming Burton to the “crazy, wonderful world” of Twitter.

“I’ve got your back,” Bush wrote.

Peyton and Brooke forever… uh, we mean, Hilarie and Sophia forever!
