There’s a certain science when it comes to crafting the perfect tweet. Like any form of comedy, you’ve got to hit the right pace, the right tone, and strike the right audience at the right time, to boot.

Which is to say, it’s not as easy as these 12 people make it look – but that makes them all the more enjoyable to read, I think!

12. I’m sorry but I’ve gotta side with your wife here.

It’s the old man flu argument, son.

11. Everyone with an older relative knows this is the price of good information.

And it’s not a bad story, as these things go.

10. You always think you can fit just one more thing in there.

Until you definitely can’t and everything is gross.

9. Live and learn, my friends.

Mostly about how it’s fun to troll younger people.

8. There is definitely not room in this tweet for the entire argument.

It’s going to take a few days, tbh.

7. Hmmm I bet he forgot to take out the trash.

If you know what I mean.

6. And doing things like getting up before 8am.

It’s all bliss, I’m telling you.

5. The saddest part about this is that I nodded along.

Different things are a different kind of exciting, but still, it’s not bad.

4. Why would a person do this?

Maybe just to keep you on your toes?

3. Snoring never helps anything.

But neither does keeping your already pissed off and tired wife awake, so.

2. It’s important to keep the other person focused.

Especially in battle conditions like these.

1. I hear it really keeps the spice alive.

Personally, my husband prefers not to be spoken to at all until he’s yelled at the kids at least three times.

I hope one day I can hit a chord like these!

Which one hit you just right? Tell us in the comments!
