We’ve hit you with some all-time “dumb” tweets in the past but how about we go in a different direction?
Below, we’ve compiled some of our favorite tweets of all-time. They’re either of historical significance, are a perfect reflection of pop culture, or are just really friggin’ funny. Let’s dive in!
People have live-tweeted matters of some importance without realizing it at the time, sure. But this guy, Sohaib Athar (@ReallyVirtual) actually live-tweeted the Abottabad raid of Osama Bin Laden that led to the famed terrorist’s death. Holy crap, dude!
This tweeter set up a Twitter joke… and then waited five years to deliver the punchline. Seriously—five friggin’ years. That’s incredible discipline.
The title says it all.
“Had to wash little bloody mouths. Life on farm.”
The last tweet from the dying actor was poignant and perfect.
We just really liked this one.
Oh, CIA. You’re witty.
You already heard about this one but that’s sorta the point—this one was too famous and monumental to leave off this list.
“GALE CRATER I AM IN YOU!!!”
He’s equally good on land AND in water!
Kanye’s infamous tweet was actually targeted at Wiz Khalifa but we think it’s absolutely hilarious when taken out of context.
The very first tweet ever—courtesy of Twitter co-founder, Jack Dorsey. (Or is it “twttr?”)
