Come for the laughs, then stay for the discourse, the arguments, the origination of many popular memes, the objectively* problematic ,* but, most importantly, the culture that drives the internet. Welcome to what the web has deemed Black Twitter. As Twitter evolved as a medium, a subculture emerged that felt more like a barbershop than a typical social network. It felt like home.

Whether its a discussion on the differences between thick and fat, the minimum amount that you need to spend on a date, LeBron James’ hairline, white privilege, or the gender war, every single day is a thrill ride. You can cry from laughing, have your entire view changed, and be extremely offended all within the same minute. Theres truly no place like it and though there are plenty of perfect tweets, here are 29 great ones.


This list wouldnt be a listing without a tweet from Desus Nice. No one is better at synthesizing white people than Black Twitter, and here he highlights one of the truest facts on the planet: white people love dogs. A lot. Like put their actual human child on a leash while wearing their dog in a baby Bjorn a lot.

But since you are now here…

Stay for knowing when to stay in your lane

Remember when Jay-Z* allegedly* cheated on Beyonc, got beat up in an elevator by Solange, inspired an album debut on HBO and a multi-million dollar worldwide tour as a result? Were playing checkers and the Carters are playing Peruvian backgammon.


It goes without saying, but this dude has to quit track and might need to stop running wholly, because reaching the peak of your craft merely to see yourself become a laughable meme is as disheartening as it gets.


Dont worry, Jay isnt immune to these tweets either. Although it appears that he IS very immune to playing athletics correctly.

Stay for the ridiculous and problematic


Jokes aside, there is no denying that poor Muhammad here looks exactly like a honey bun. In fact, it has reached the phase where you would even say that some honey buns look like Muhammad.


Youll find extremely talented people on Black Twitter in just about every field. However, that doesnt always mean theyll use their powers for good. Sometimes they’ll photoshop Tiger Woods and Jay-Z babies.




Mero here managed to summarize the cultural impact of the Drake v. Meek Mill rap battlea fight Meek lost harder than the Warriors blew a 3-1 leadand effectively utilized the word rant all in the same tweet. Also: Drake played a PowerPoint presentation of tweets he stole from Black Twitter to go at Meek during a concert. Black Twitter won a rap battle, you guys.


If that sounds outrageous and completely made up, you wouldnt be wrong to assume that. But it did. A human left his children on Christmas morning to drive his automobile for hours to fight a man in Temecula, California after get in a Twitter argument over Kobe Bryant, only to find out that the man he wanted to fight was at his mothers house in Arizona. Definitely not a Father of the Year nominee.

Stay for the politics


Watching our countrys first black President pass the baton to Donald Trump was a tough pill to swallow for Black Twitter. We didnt want Barry to go and it didnt feel officially real until this moment.


One of the more important tweets in Black Twitter history. When Barack Obama was in office, we didnt want the experience to end after only four yearsso we needed to run the numbers on the opponent. And, as it turned out, that motherfuckers name was actually Mitt. An utterly damning reason not to be president.


Black Twitter did an amazing chore capturing the best bromance in executive branch history. While the tweets and memes constructed us feel like we took their relationship for granted, its rare to see a president and vice president love and admire one another so much. They were homies, for real.

Stay for celebs keeping it a little too real


A perk of Twitter is the access it gives you to celebrities, athletes, and essentially anyone deemed important. That also means it gives you a glimpse into their personality and, well, it gets interesting.


In this series of you havent deleted this shit yet? we have hot-take extraordinaire and professional ESPN arguer Stephen A. Smith in a one-sided online battle against a presumed dating site that can best be described as PREPOSTEROUS.


This was the first major I was hacked to happen on Twitter and it sparked the greatest bad excuse in internet history. What should have been a lesson instead gave us the ultimate fail-safe for any errant dick or boob pics.

Stay for the hashtags


This hashtag brought us all together through our differentbut all too similar experiences with our families on Thanksgiving. Because all of us have a tale involving THAT auntie, uncle, or cousin.


A unifying hashtag that connected all of our common experiences, #GrowingUpBlack was a nostalgic trip-up down memory lane. Whos to say T-Pain didnt become inspired to construct Buy U a Drank after crooning into a box fan.


CVS-brand Terio didnt know hed become famous the day he got caught looking like a deer in the headlights, but thats why its one of the great moments in Black Twitter history. Magic can happen at any given moment in any dedicated Popeyes line.


If youve been in trouble, this is probably exceedingly triggering. The go over there punishment usually boiled down to an upset mother sending you into a random corner near a doorway. These springy things got us through some tough times.


Jadakiss Why came out 13 years ago, but we still cant seem to figure out: Why Halle have to let a white man pop her to get an Oscar? Why Denzel have to be crooked before he took it?

Still searching for answers…

But, most importantly, remain for the relatable


Anxiety doesnt even begin to describe the anxiety-inducing effects of this tweet. With that told, this might be the only day this meme has ever appeared on Twitter. A unicorn meme, if you will.


Birthing the iconic Evil Kermit meme is a feat on its own, but the sheer trillness( trill= combining of true and real) of this tweet constructs it stand alone on its own. Shrieking, argue, and sever relationships first. Ask questions last.


Taking time for yourself is also a big tenet of Black Twitter. Every day, the timeline reminds you that there is no better cheerleader than yourself. It doesnt matter who you are or what you look like. A fresh cut is like acquiring a star in Super Mario. Youre invincible for a short quantity of day. Your jokes hit harder, your breath aromas a little better, and you might snag a compliment here and there. Relish it.


One of the best Twitter subplots is Kawhi Leonards animosity of basketball. Sure, hes an MVP candidate, but does that look like a human that actually likes basketball? Black Twitter also moonlights as an unaccredited athletics psychologist.


A friendly reminder to quit while you are ahead. If you feel like youre doing a little too well in your day-to-day, merely remember that the blue shell of life is careening towards you at all times.


This is probably one of the hardest hitting tweets in existence. It’s since been deleted, but it always needs to be seen every once in awhile to hold you grounded. You may have traumatic moments in your life, but none of them compare to missing a you up? text during late night hours.


Arguably the most disrespectful tweet of all time and a timeless auto-RT whenever it comes across the TL. One of the main themes of Black Twitter is the constant gender war. Each day both sides are jockeying for position in a Game of Thrones -type battle where tons of people die horrific online deaths.


#DuragHistoryWeek is an official vacation( the NYSE is a hater for not acknowledging it as such) within Black Twitter.

And finally, stay for the all too real


Think about everything youve done over the last few years. There were some solid accomplishments in there, Im sure. Now come to the realization that you didnt do as much as Gucci Mane did while he was in jail. Amazing that we survived Ebola.
