The 100 best tweets of 2017

It’s safe to say that 2017 has… not been a great year. Systematic abuses of power, political fuckery, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. We’ve waited long enough and can now officially decree: 2017 = bad. Well, mostly bad. 

As the city’s residents decamp to the countryside, as you lie awake trying to remember which family member you forgot to buy a present for (it’s your sister), and as the Google search trend for “auld lang syne lyrics” starts its tragic trajectory skyward, we can confirm: there have been some good tweets. 

Twitter has taken a lot of flack over the past 12 months for its high concentration of Nazis, trolls, Russian spybots, and Piers Morgan, but thank god there are still people out there using it as a force for good, for laughter, for banter, banter elevated to the group chat of the gods. 

Sit back, put your phone on DND, emails on OOO, and (in no particular order) enjoy the best of the best:
