Sharp won moment of the season at the English Football League's end-of-year awards ceremony on Sunday evening, after scoring his 200th league goal earlier in the campaign.
Bullen later posted: "Forget rivalries.... this is an unbelievable achievement for any footballer".
And Sharp replied: "Thanks mate, topman".

Bullen has managed to rile several Sheffield United supporters with his Twitter activity throughout this season, but it is some of those of a Sheffield Wednesday persuasion who appear to have taken issue with the Scot's above message.
Here's how they're responding:
We don’t forget rivalries round here fella— edders (@edders18) April 7, 2019
He’s a fat ****, delete this lol
Sometimes it’s better to say nothing at all
Doesn't matter what football club you support, achievements should still be acknowledged and that's some achievement. Congratulations Billy Sharp— Alex (@AlexanderSwfc) 8 April 2019
Agreed. I’ve said a few times I should hate him but in reality I find it very difficult to do so (gritted teeth bit) hell of an achievement and he comes across as a decent guy..— Andrew Gardner (@AndyJGard) 8 April 2019
Top man Lee. Just can't see many blunts returning the favour if it were the other way round.— Jonny Smith (@JammoOwls) 8 April 2019
Well said lee Wawaw— Mark Baines (@markbaines64) 8 April 2019
Bullen and Sharp could have been teammates at Sheffield Wednesday, only for the latter to reject a move to Hillsborough in favour of a return to Sheffield United in 2007.
Sharp is now in his third and most successful spell at Bramall Lane, where he used to watch the Blades as a fan.
The 33-year-old has scored 23 Championship goals this season, putting Sheffield Wednesday's rivals in the driving seat for the division's final automatic promotion place.
