What the hell is going on on Twitter? Hyper-realistic cake memes? Entanglement? Bomboclaats every which way you look?
Honestly, I’d love to explain it all to you but I can hardly explain it to myself and I don’t want this turning into a 40,000 word essay.
It’s easier to just show you, anyway. So. Here are 15 samples of what Twitter has been up to lately.
15. The final frontier
Turns out neither the flat-earthers nor the globeheads had it totally right.

13. Secret sauce
And in 2020, it’s never worth going back for.

11. Taking the cake
You made me watch this with my innocent eyes!
We’re actually living in a world where the person sitting beside you could be a cake https://t.co/ZlR1K8yVts

10. Meat your maker
When you’re dealing with Ikea, you never know when it’s all going to come together.

7. The Drake equation
If you can’t play nice, nobody gets any toys.

6. Circle of life
Inescapable dread and depression are a big mood.
2020 is about texting your friends "i'm so sad and scared and lonely :-(" and then they respond "mood lol" and then they text you a few days later like "things are really bad :-(" and you're like "lmao same"

Has this gone far enough yet? Are we done?

4. Two for one special
There’s an advantage to keeping things short and sweet.

3. Unrequited melodies
When you’re so young that you can’t comprehend other people.
Just occurred to me that the girlfriend who dumped me in my early twenties may never have listened to the post-breakup mixtape I gave her that was themed around my sadness at having been broken up with by her

2. Thiccer than water
The romance is all boiled away.
My bf: you look really hot
Me: aw thank you
My bf: what?
Me: what did you just say?
My bf: the water is really hot

1. Turn around
If this isn’t what life’s all about, I truly don’t know what is.
