10 Twitter Moments

Twitter has been in the news a lot over the last seven days, but for all of the wrong reasons. And, yes, I'm talking about those heinous Trump tweets. Even while the president was busy sh*tposting all over the joint, however, there was still plenty of content to stick around for on the fastest-moving social network this week, as we're about to find out in the latest edition of We Are: The Guard's 10 Twitter Moments. Fingers and thumbs at the ready, then, as it's time to scroll through the following 280-character highlights from Janelle Monáe, Miley Cyrus, Cardi B, and more.

JANELLE MONÁE TAKES ON TRUMP

SHE SAID WHAT SHE SAID! Janelle Monáe is completely fuming following Trump's racist tweetstorm on Sunday, and let's face it, who can blame her! THIS *clap* HAS *clap* TO *clap* STOP!

P.S. MONÁE 2020!

 

KID CUDI RECALLS DANCING TO MGMT AT COACHELLA

Kid Cudi dancing to MGMT at Coachella is my summer aesthetic. Seriously! This video of Cudder getting his groove on to “Electric Feel” never gets old and I'm certain that there hasn't been a more iconic festival moment since.

 

TROYE SIVAN AND ALEC BENJAMIN HINT AT COLLAB

OMG! This needs to happen! Troye Sivan and Alec Benjamin are nothing short of singing-songwriting CHERUBS and a collab would undoubtedly sound like it was sent from the heavens!

 

KELLY CLARKSON HAS SOME ADVICE FOR TAYLOR SWIFT

And now we turn to Reason #6958 why Kelly Clarkson is The Greatest Human Being Ever™. We stan a supportive queen! Can we also talk about the fact that JoJo did exactly this with her first two albums?!

 

MARIAH CAREY SETS HER SIGHTS ON “OLD TOWN ROAD”

Old Town Road” remixes are basically keeping the world turning at this point. And, following a call from Lil Nas X, it seems that there are plenty of artists willing to jump on the hit single, including the legendary Mariah Carey and, erm, Smash Mouth?!

 

LEWIS CAPALDI AND NOEL GALLAGHER ARE BEEFING

Lewis Capaldi and Noel Gallagher wasn't the beef that I was expecting to find myself invested in this 2019, but when insults like this are being thrown around, I have no choice but to give it my full attention. Now I'm just waiting on Lewis and Liam Gallagher to collab to further p*ss off Noel. #TeamCapaldi

 

MILEY CYRUS AND SELENA GOMEZ ARE HEADED TO AREA 51

If you're not one of the 1.4 million Facebook users who have signed up to storm Area 51, then maybe Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez can help to convince you to join this most important cause?! The alienzzz are waiting for you – right, Lizzo?!

 

CARDI B THROWS HER SUPPORT BEHIND BERNIE SANDERS

And so the Cardi B-Bernie Sanders Twitter love affair continues! I'm confident that it's only a matter of time before Daddy Bernie is walking out on stage at campaign rallies to the sounds of “Bodak Yellow.” If that doesn't secure him the presidency bag, then I don't know WHAT will!

 

GRIMES ELABORATES ON HER EXPERIMENTAL SURGERY

Grimes acting like nobody has ever heard of Death Note is giving me some serious “Justin Bieber quotes Tool” vibes. Anyways! This combined with the whole Instagram “training regimen” really does prove that Claire Elise Boucher is the queen of sh*tposting, huh?!

 

RIHANNA STILL HASN'T DROPPED THE ALBUM

QUIT PLAYING WITH US, ROBYN FENTY!
