Metta adds he's excited to see what Zuck's company does moving forward.
"I was literally working, and my phone was ringing non stop. Lol. Congrats FB / #meta."
The company responded to the shoutout ... saying, "Best name ever, right? Can't wait to see you on court in the meTTaverse."
The collab you never knew you wanted.
