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.

10. Sweet and crumbling

Smile through the pain, cookie man.


9. The daily grind

What is this “occasionally exercising” crap?

8. The Lincoln effect

Frankly, I don’t give a buck.


7. Funny games

Batten down the hatches, there’s a storm brewin’.

6. Night rituals

“This is the best night ever.” – cat, probably

5. Impotent invasion

Bro if you find any you can have it, damn.


4. Disappearing ink

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

3. Which white where?

Ah yes, Teethy Mc…Tie…son.

2. I get high-drated

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.
