A lot of people have been talking about how Elon Musk ruined Twitter. While the dude is undeniably insufferable, we regret to inform these folks that the app has almost always been iffy at best. Sure, there’s a lot to be laughed at (and learned about) on Twitter, but there’s also a lot that scares us. Pompous incels spouting dangerous vitriol, political know-it-alls who love reading their own words, and those people who really, really need to touch grass one of these days. To say that Twitter has collapsed would be erroneous – it’s been on a slow downward spiral for years.
With that said, there are still some gems making their way around the bird app. Sometimes it’s a cute story that makes us smile, a cat picture, a bad joke, or even a self-deprecating story. Sometimes it’s a pun that elicits a groan from our chapped lips. We’re here to celebrate the funny, relatable tweets that keep Twitter alive throughout the week. They deserve our praise.
