Rooney grabbed his goal from the penalty spot after Everton were awarded a spot-kick in the 77th minute.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin was deemed to have been fouled by Dejan Lovren in the box, and Rooney took the opportunity to level the scores.
Mohamed Salah had put Liverpool ahead just before half-time after a stunning solo effort.
Liverpool fans didn’t appreciate Rooney’s tweet and bombarded the striker’s feed with a mixture of witty comebacks and abuse.

The 1-1 draw equaled a club record for the Reds as they have now gone unbeaten in the last 15 Merseyside Derbies.
Liverpool have an opportunity to break the record in January when they host the Toffees in the FA Cup third round.
