Wanna know a fun and slightly horrifying fact? If you were to try to go through and read the tweets that were tweeted last week – and I mean, just the ones from last week – it would take you over five hundred years to finish.

Seriously. Five hundred million tweets a day.

Average it out to about 5 seconds to read each one and – assuming you never had to stop to eat or sleep because you got some immortality potion, you’d finish up around the year 2574. All your friends would be long dead but you’d know all the best jokes.

Since you probably don’t have that kind of time or potions, we’ll just whittle it down to a few random good ones.

7. Keeping tabs

6. Male pattern boldness

5. Wrong way

Oh, I’ve made my choice.

4. Good boys

Brian sounds incredibly easy-going and patient.


3. Spooky scary skeletons

These are the deep truths it takes years to uncover.

2. Time zones

There is a time for everything, and right now isn’t it.

1. Middle man

Lycos: *looks over Bing guy’s shoulder*

There ya go, just a few minutes of your day gone instead of several millennia.
