The musings of Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift lead the way as numbers and subtweets dominate the 140-character medium
It’s true: there are only 11 days left until the 2018 Iditarod race and #napseaplane is trending.
First and foremost, two words don’t create a story but they help it grow. The Twitter user who posted #SleepOut – with 56 retweets and 34 faves – made that clear before he even managed to write a single tweet.
Finally, it’s true that the number six is a number of something – literal and spiritual – or six, or five, or one, or one … and for slightly different reasons.
In a follow-up to #SleepOut, Yeezy – the officially launched Twitter feed for rapper Kanye West – gets in on the act with a response: “we can’t sleep in now”. Which seems odd – considering the weather report is sounding like it’s about to rain.
A tweeter known as Ruffled Feathers had quite the response: “yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaoudit”, whatever that means, except some sort of frantic praise for Kanye West.
Besides the goodwill tweets, Twitter had it all to offer as the year 2019 picked up: the Migos didn’t like their own music videos; Chris Pratt was suspended from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2; Lena Dunham wrote to Dave Chapelle to tell him that, well, we still haven’t reached puberty; and Penn Badgley grew an “arcade mug” for his “bff”, the only thing that could make his and Cardi B’s feud feel a little more authentic.
We wish Cardi B good luck in her upcoming quest for international pop stardom. But for the rest of you who are looking for something to occupy your spare time for the next few days, you’re in luck – Netflix has a rabbit hole full of memes and videos (well, a hole, really).
