Twitter Thread Calls Out Hypocrisy Of ‘Woke’ Brands’ Black Lives Matter Posts

As the country nears a week of protests following the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor by police, there’s been an influx of people and brands showing their support on social media. #BlackoutTuesday, which happened yesterday, was probably the largest show of virtual solidarity yet. The “movement,” which was mostly on Instagram and Twitter, called for the “muting” of usual programming such as work promotions, art, and lifestyle posting. To show support, many people and brands began posting black squares to their timelines, as an attempt to highlight black voices and information regarding police brutality. Early in the day there was a backlash regarding the apparent censorship of these very voices – it seemed many social users were hashtagging #Blacklivesmatter and creating a literal blackout of important movement information. But as @RespectableLaw, a progressive lawyer who supports working families, pointed out in a fascinating Twitter thread, there are other problems with the squareposting.

Many big brands, from Nike to Microsoft, were eager to adopt the passive show of support. At first glance, it’s nice to see corporations take the side of the people who make them profitable. @RespectableLaw, however, took to Twitter to show how many of these brands have extremely shady and inhumane business practices. Most of them have used child labor. There may not be such a thing as ethical consumption right now, but it’s important to realize that brands are not your friends – and they have a lot of work to do before their passive shows of solidarity are taken seriously,.

Oddly Specific Twitter Troll About Boiled Eggs Is A Flashback From The ’90s

Twitter user Marina Ayano K brought back some serious (and very specific) ’90s nostalgia when she tweeted about that little roller ball-thing found in computer mice that we were all fascinated by as kids. She then proceeded to troll her younger followers by claiming that that little ball was actually made out of the yolk of a hard-boiled egg, and that we had to prepare said yolk in order to use the mouse. Lo and behold, some people actually bought it, and the resulting tweets are priceless.

Twitter Thread Gives Mind-Boggling Tour Of A House That Is Not What It Seems

Remember when grownups used to say “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover”? Well, the metaphor is especially true for this basic-looking home that’s anything but. Twitter user @frazierapproves shared a very special listing yesterday for a home just outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Introducing it as the greatest house ever, @frazierapproves takes us on a twitter thread tour that reveals the cookie-cutter house boasts a lovely yard – and an incredibly zany interior. We don’t want to spoil it for you, but have you ever wished for a beach in your basement? Apparently these homeowners did. Their asking price? A veritable bargain at $159,000. Enjoy the roller coaster ride.

Twitter Thread: The Men Of Middle Earth As Terrible Ex-Boyfriends

Finally, a Twitter threadthat somehow manages to combine two of our favorite things: Lord of the Rings and talking shit about ex-boyfriends. Twitter user @AlexArellia hits the nail right on the head with these assessments, and even tacked on everyone’s favorite dudes from The Hobbit  after receiving numerous requests on her viral thread.

Lord Of The Rings & The Onion Meet In Genius Twitter Thread

We’re no strangers to good mashups – we’re still laughing about that Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Harry Potter combo – but this one just hits different. Twitter user @laurbarbq took to the site early this week to share nineteen brilliant pairings of Lord of the Rings movie stills and classic satirical headlines from The Onion. The results, as you can see below, work extremely well. And as both the movies and The Onion are pretty prolific, we’re hoping to see more of these gems in the future.

Cringey Sexist Twitter Thread Suggests ‘Leaning In’ Makes Men Weak

Happy Monday! Are you ready for a new week of cringe? ‘Cause there’s a whole lot of it on the internet today. Our new favorite facepalm-worthy thread comes from @alpharivelino,an account run by a sexistdude with way too many followers. The thread, which was shared on May 2, suggests that men who lean into their partner during photo ops are weak. Using photos of Hafthor Bjornssen (one of the world’s strongest men), Jason Statham, and Kevin Hart, @alpharivelinotries to make his case that posturing determines whether you’re a strong, powerful man, or basically a needysimp. Needless to say, people on Twitter did not take kindly to the ridiculous thread, and were very vocal about it.

Text - Rivelino @alpharivelino WHY CAN'T A MAN LEAN IN? When a man leans into his girl, he reveals that he feels needy & lower value.

History-Packed Twitter Thread Uses Spanish Flu Missteps To Highlight Importance Of Masks

As people in the United States are suffer from cabin fever and empty pockets, some citizens and law makers are protesting everything from lockdowns to wearing masks. Most medical experts, including the esteemed Dr. Fauci, warn against loosening coronavirus-related restrictions too quickly. They’re worried it could lead to more illness, and even worse, death. Nobody wants to take one step forward and two steps back when lives are on the line.

 In response, NPR Investigative correspondent Tim Makdecided to do some serious digging regarding San Francisco’s Anti-Mask League of 1918. The Anti-Mask league’s moniker is pretty self explanatory. It was a group that rejected the use of masks following the initial Spanish Flu outbreak. After months of keeping inside and wearing masks when they needed to join the outside world, people decided they were over it. Up to 90% of people decided to go maskless. After the city proposed mandatory mask-use, thousands of people calling themselves the Anti-Mask league showed up to protest. As Spanish Flu cases in the California City were rising. Eventually, a mandatory mask ordinance was enacted, and cases (after increasing) seemed to slow down. Still, San Francisco was one of the hardest-hit American cities. The thread is a cautionary tale – and you can read the gorey details below. 

Stay safe, and please wear a mask

Insightful Thread About “Long Stringy Thingy” Discovered In The Ocean (Tweets)

It’s scientifically called a “siphonophore Apolemia” but everyone is calling it the world’s longest “long stringy stingy thingy.”

Which, honestly, is way more catchy. 

International ocean researchers may have just discovered the longest living… thing… in the known world. Captured in a haunting video and explained upon in a Twitter thread by biologist Rebecca Helm, who specializes in studying jellyfish at the University of North Carolina Asheville.

Queen Elizabeth Wears Green Dress, Inspires Incredible Photoshop Thread

Many people are frustrated with world leaders handling of the coronavirus situation, but Queen Elizabeth (who, to be fair, has pretty much zero political say) has gone and done some serious good for everyone coping with this disaster. Not in the form of aid, but humor. The Queen made a rare televised appearance on Sunday to discuss the challenges her country is facing with COVID-19. The four minute address was hopeful, but the green dress she wore had a much larger effect on the internet than her message of hope. 

On Twitter, @rockpapercynic started a wild thread of photoshopped images of the Queen in here very meme-able dress. Some of the shops were related to current events and pop culture, others were just straight up stupid. But right now we need all the humor we can get. And if that means preying on old women wearing green dresses, so be it.

Twitter Thread: University Professor Shares Stories Of Students Affected By Covid-19

As the world struggles to cope with the Covid-19 outbreak, many people are finding themselves without work. But most schools are still in session.

From the deaths of loved ones to constant sixteen hour EMT shifts, these students have the weight of the world on their shoulders. And Carroll wants the world to know – and to cut students a bit of slack at this time. We need more professors like her.

Chilling Twitter Thread Describes The Dire Situation At NYC Hospitals

Despite the fact that COVID-19 has been around since November, many countries (and people) are still figuring out how to grapple with the outbreak as it worsens in countries like Italy and the United States. Unfortunately, hospitals stateside are already reeling from Coronavirus cases. Author Evan Siegfried took to Twitter last night with a chilling update from one of his friends who works at a New York City hospital. The nurse describes an alarming situation that’s a combination of under-staffing, lack of supplies, and a serious need for blood. We sincerely hope that people stop hoarding medical supplies so that the professionals can take care of the people who really need help.

Frustrated Manager’s Twitter Thread Reveals How COVID-19 Brings Out The Worst In Customers

As hysterical citizens flock to Targets, Walmarts, and local businesses to hoard toilet paper and hand sanitizer, some seem to forget that the people stocking shelves and managing stores are humans, too. Frustrated grocery store manager @dadopotamus took to Twitter to share his feelings about many COVID-19 fear shoppers: 

“I manage a grocery store.  I gotta say.  You’re all giant scumbags.”

While the tweet may seem negative, other retail workers joined in to share their experiences, and those of loved ones who are crumbling from the stress of trying to help people get the supplies they need. While of course there are polite people taking only what they need during this crisis, according to this thread there are far more people crying injustice and treating workers like crap.
