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!

 

1. The Guy That Live-tweeted the Bin Laden Raid

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!

 

2. The Epitome of Delayed Gratification

This tweeter set up a Twitter joke… and then waited five years to deliver the punchline. Seriously—five friggin’ years. That’s incredible discipline.

 

3. Basically Anything From The Thoughts of Dog Account

The title says it all.

 

4. Martha Stewart When She Sounds Like She’s Tweeting in the “Thoughts of Dog” Voice

“Had to wash little bloody mouths. Life on farm.”

 

5. Leonard Nimoy’s Farewell Tweet

The last tweet from the dying actor was poignant and perfect.

 

6. The Ventriloquist Taxidermist

We just really liked this one.

 

7. That Time the CIA Greeted the World

Oh, CIA. You’re witty.

 

8. That Time Wikileaks Responded to the CIA’s Greeting

Daaaammmmnn.

 

9. Ellen’s Oscars Photo



You already heard about this one but that’s sorta the point—this one was too famous and monumental to leave off this list.

 

10. The Curiosity Rover’s Got Jokes

“GALE CRATER I AM IN YOU!!!”

 

11. The Amphibious Pitcher

He’s equally good on land AND in water!

 

12. Cards of Humanity Isn’t As Fun for Lance Armstrong

Poor guy.

 

13. You Have Distracted Yeezy From His Creative Process

Kanye’s infamous tweet was actually targeted at Wiz Khalifa but we think it’s absolutely hilarious when taken out of context.

14. “Twttr”

The very first tweet ever—courtesy of Twitter co-founder, Jack Dorsey. (Or is it 
“twttr?”)
