If you’re joining us today, it means that you survived the OKC Purge of 2014. I’m glad you’re still with us. Let’s take a moment and remember those we lost.
Just kidding. We didn’t lose anyone because Twitter is simultaneously the best social network and also full of hoaxes. Remember when Jeff Goldblum died? Yeah. Don’t trust anything you read on Twitter. Unless it’s from me or any of the various TLO accounts. Everything we tell you there is absolutely true. And you can bet that our commentary on the tweets of others is completely spot on. We are the most trusted name in Monday Morning Tweets.
As always, those tweets are after the jump!
Happy Monday, everyone! Raise your hand if you had a Sunday fun day. Now, put on your sunglasses inside your office and yell at your coworkers to not talk so loud if you had a Sunday too much fun day. Just know that it’s going to be 70 times worse next weekend. I mean, we have college football and Labor Day. May as well go buy some activated charcoal, aspirin, and Gatorade now so you have it ready and waiting. But before you do that, check out these tweets, y’all.
As always, they’re after the jump.
We had quite a week last week, didn’t we? (I want you to imagine me in a Mister Rogers sweater, sympathetically looking at you as you read this.) We lost Robin Williams to suicide. An officer shot a man in Ferguson, Missouri, which was followed by protests and very oppressive police action. Everyone and their brother took the damn ice bucket challenge. It was a very busy week on social media. And in times like that, I think it’s important to laugh. So, I won’t focus on the bad things that happened and the tweets they inspired. Instead, let’s look at the funny stuff. (Now, imagine me morphing back into a non-Mr. Rogers sort of person that you generally imagine me to be.)
Besides, you guys, Emily Sutton live tweeted Into the Storm and two food truck apps got into a Twitter spat. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover!
As always, the tweets are after the jump!
Thank God it’s Monday, am I right? You made it through another weekend and here we are again. I know the day is shaping up to be terrible, but just remember that you can probably find a plate of affordable cheese fries at lunch to make you feel better, and I’ve got a hot serving of OKC social media schadenfreude just waiting for you. Join me as we collectively gird our loins for the week ahead by laughing at the local tweeps. I’ve collected the best tweets from the past week (or at least the ones that caught my eye) and put them right here so you’ll have something to read and laugh at while you ignore the incoming stream of emails and meeting invitations in your Outlook inbox.
As always, they’re right here after the jump!
As a person who regularly loses large amounts of time to daydreaming, blackout drunkenness, and accidentally stepping through rifts in time and space, it’s no surprise to me that July is over and August is here. To everyone else who is surprised, I’m sorry. It’s probably a wormhole though, if that makes you feel any better. Yeah, you lost little pieces of your life when you stepped through it, but at least now you’re one step closer to fall! And to cheer you up after your little bout of time travel, I’ve gone and aggregated some tweets for you. Y’all oughta keep me around. I just keep on giving.
Anyway, as always, the tweets are after the jump. (In this case, the “read more” jump and the jump through time.)
Thanks! Your message has been sent!
