Something Gen Z seems to be pretty into right now is dragging Millennials on Twitter. And by dragging, I mean mostly just pointing out banal things that we do in an accusatory tone.
And yanno, that’s fine. I’m here for it. I’ll even add to the conversation, if you want. Our behavior really isn’t quite so baffling once you hear some explanations for where it comes from.
Let’s try doing a bit of that now.
10. A game of tag
We never really got the hang of how to strategically get views so we just throw everything at the wall.
millennials love posting memes and using 10 hashtags under their pics lmao it’s kinda cute

9. My Favorite Murder
We’re so used to witnessing and contemplating corruption and destruction that it’s basically recreational for us now.
Millennials love listening to podcasts that make them go “ugh, that’s so fucked up” every 5 minutes

8. Back in my day
We’re just reflecting on back when it seemed fun and cool and not like the harbinger of the end of society.
Millennials love telling ppl they were on FB back when you had to have a college email

7. Adult content
Because our own adulthoods have been stunted by the failure of a million societal promises.
why do millennials love the word adulting so much

6. See hear now
If you’d seen the insane change in technology that we witnessed, you’d still be thinking about it too.
Older millennials love to tell people in their 20s things like "you probably don't know what a vcr is"

5. Say cheese
It’s one of the only affordable ways we can feel sophisticated.
millennials love cheese boards unlike any other generation before

4. Up where the air is rarefied
It’s one of the only affordable ways we can feel luxurious.
Someone pls explain to me y millennials love air purifiers.

3. The grunge
Believe it or not, bad quality photos of people screwing up their lungs was what we were taught was cool.
Millennials love grainy photographs of celebrities smoking cigarettes in the 90s.

2. So much winning
We have so few actual wins in life, just let us have this.
Millennials love saying how people “win” things. Like “win the internet” “win Twitter”

1. Booty call
Wait, doesn’t everybooty?
millennials love saying the word “booty”
