2018 has been a wild ride so far, and it seems more and more the best way to follow the action is through Twitter. It may not be the most trusted source, but it is the fastest.
Every day hundreds of tweets go viral, getting retweeted so much you’d have to be living under a rock not to see them. On the off chance you are crawling out from underneath that rock to read this post, I’ve generously gathered some of the most retweeted tweets of 2018 here. You’re welcome.
It’s a common misconception that the only way for your tweet to get thousands of retweets is because you have thousands of followers. Not true. Many of these huge tweets come from small accounts. These tweets blow up by snowballing. They hit a nerve and get passed along until they hit a big account or a celebrity and then BAM. Exponential growth. So don’t give up. Maybe one day I’ll be putting you on one of these lists.

I'm in the library and there's a bf helping his gf study and I've been overhearing parts of their conversation for the last hour and he just said "Babe, I'm gonna be honest with you. You're going to fail this test, I love you, but there's nothing we can do about it now" I’m dead

Work friends are so funny bc like do we see each other outside of work? Almost never. But do I know details about your sex life? Do i know your financial situation? Have i seen you in every mood imaginable? Do i know all your deepest darkest secrets? Hell yeah.

I feel sorry for Netflix era kids. They will never know the high stakes adrenaline of running to the bathroom/fridge/bedroom in a single ad break, with the beckoning call of a sibling screaming “It’s ONNNNNN” to send you hurdling over furniture to get back in time.

A student emailed me, profusely apologizing for getting my name wrong at the top of their paper, and I was like, “Thanks, whatever, nbd.” Then I got to their paper and saw their instructor was “Professor whats his nuts”

When my youngest brother was little he was being bullied and went to my parents for help. They told him “Sticks and stones may break my bones” they then asked him to finish the phrase and he said “but chains and whips excite me” he seriously thought that was he second part.

canceling plans is ok. staying home to cook is ok. disappearing for a bit to get your life together is ok. resurfacing in a foreign country with a new name 10 years later is ok. it's called self care
