The two laughed the incident off during the resulting back-and-forth on Twitter, each making jokes about their respective conspiracy theories floating around:
Sen. Cruz replied to a Tweet by Sasse with a Zodiac Killer note:

The Zodiac Killer is a real serial killer from history responsible for a string of murders in the 60s and 70s, and he remains at large, never caught by police.
Up until his Tweet, Sen. Cruz pretty much refused to acknowledge the meme, even though it gained such traction, a reporter once asked his wife about it in an interview.
Some believe his acknowledgement kills the joke, but, research shows a common serial killer practice is to try and throw you off their scent:
While others just wanted to keep it going.
I think Ted Cruz just admitted to being the Zodiac Killer. https://t.co/xwwJcO9CS3

And still others tweeted about another news story Cruz probably hopes everyone forgot about.
ME: You're the Zodiac Killer.
TED CRUZ: No, I'm not!
ME: OK, you're that Senator who jerked off.
TED CRUZ: …ok I'm the Zodiac Killer.
