When Jack Dorsey established the company back in 2006, he said they picked the name because the word “Twitter” means “a short burst of inconsequential information.” Well Jack… you weren’t wrong!
Now, Jack probably couldn’t have known that eventually state officials and legitimate news organizations would also be sharing information through his site, but he was right, there was going to be a LOT of inconsequential twittering.
And for most of us, that’s our favorite part. Forget the political trolling and the self-promotion, just give me the jokes and this whole Twitter enterprise (Twenterprise?) will have been worthwhile.
Let’s look at some now.
10. Started from the bottom, now we’re still at the bottom.

She doesn’t know how to eat soup the fun way!
Date: You shouldn't be using a straw
Me: I know, I know, it's bad for the environment
Date: It's just a weird way to eat soup

Meaning, I’ll take a slice out of you and then put you in the freezer for later. #murderhumor

2. I do as I’m told
I’ve never understood this.
I like it when they put 'the end' after a movie, so that you know not to stay sat in your seat for the rest of your life.

1. Mansplaining at its finest
Glad you’re letting them know. 10/10 mansplaining.
(to my date after each preview at a movie) the actual film will be much longer than that

Just remember, if you’re sitting at home bored right now, you’ve got the power to go on Twitter and make tons of people laugh. Use this power wisely.
