Is Twitter a useful way to read breaking news and stay plugged into the zeitgeist? Sure, whatever. Is it a terrible cesspool full of harassment, nihilism, and infighting? Absolutely!
Still, a lot of people just can’t stay away (myself included). And so they are left to do one thing: use the #Twitter platform to tweet about how much Twitter sucks — especially with its new 280-character limit.
Here are a few favorite selections from the always compelling “tweets about Twitter” genre. May they soothe you the next time an angry man with a Confederate flag avatar and 19 followers makes you feel like moving to an underground, wi-fi free bunker.
THERAPIST: if his twitter going away made you happy, why not just leave twitter

We only need as many characters as it takes to tweet “burn it down” (so, 12 characters).

a “ok, but would you say that IRL” button would maybe make Twitter 15.2% less of a dumpster

How to improve twitter:
1. No Nazis
2. I mean number 1 shouldn’t even be a thing that should be said anymore
3. A button that just turns your screams into tweets
4. Replying to a tweet with ‘actually’ now sets your phone on fire
