What is life if not a long series of very short moments? And what is Twitter if not an endless series of short moments captured in text? We can conclude from these musings that Twitter is the essence of life itself. It is the expression of the human experience. Don’t believe me? Just look at all these marvelous little Twitter tidbits.
Here are 12 tiny instants of beauty forever preserved in tweet form.
12. Come on and ZOOM!
We are he. He is all of us.

11. Laugh it up, fuzzball
I’d just as soon kiss a Wookie.
You know it’s a good yawn when you sound like Chewbacca.

10. Sweet and crumbling
Smile through the pain, cookie man.

9. The daily grind
What is this “occasionally exercising” crap?
Can’t believe I just have to keep waking up, cleaning and feeding myself, talking to people and occasionally exercising every single day until I die…

8. The Lincoln effect
Frankly, I don’t give a buck.
The mentality “it’s only $5, why not buy it?” has probably cost me over $5000 dollars in my lifetime

7. Funny games
Batten down the hatches, there’s a storm brewin’.
If she starts saying “I just think it’s funny how” you’re about to hear some shit that she really does not think is funny

6. Night rituals
“This is the best night ever.” – cat, probably
Went to bed early. How did that work out? Got up at 3 am to make eggs and ribbon dance with my cat.

5. Impotent invasion
Bro if you find any you can have it, damn.
If a robber ever breaks into my house to search for money, I’d just laugh and search with them

4. Disappearing ink
This has got to be a first in the history of humanity.

That cat has discovered the fountain of youth.

1. Oh, deer
They didn’t evolve for this nonsense.

They may not be the most important moments, but the ones that stick with us rarely are. Thank you Twitter for capturing our fleeting thoughts and preserving them. Also for letting me fight with everybody about politics at light speed, that’s fun too, I guess.
