Question Mean (teasing?) friend, i don't know how to deal with it..?

ok so i have this really good friend we are always so supportive to each other when we need it. but we have always had this weird dynamic which ive never come across before. Its like banter i guess or insults... and i try and give as good as i get and that was fine. but recently its been getting to a new level more frequent and hasher like she will post things online saying so and so is the best person and is better than me... this is only in public, in private she is nice.
I just don't know what to do to get the whole think toned down back to a sensible level? any thoughts would be really appreciated!

First, stop responding in kind. Second, ask her to tone it down. If that doesn't work, rethink your friendship with her.

It reminds me of the saying "You don't light your own candle by blowing out someone else's."
