10 Twitter Moments

Hello, everyone, and welcome to the latest edition of We Are: The Guard's 10 Twitter Moments! So, tell me, who were you backing in The Great Chicken War on Monday? Don't get me wrong, I've been a vegetarian for over a decade, but even I think that the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich looks pretty hype! Anyways, while the entire fast-food industry was going off at each other this week, the team and I were busy as ever filtering through Twitter for all of the best celebrity tweets of the last seven days! Without further ado, then, let's check out the following 280-character highlights from Lil Nas X, Lady Gaga, Normani, and seven other favorites!

LIL NAS X CONGRATULATES BILLIE EILISH

As happy as I am for Billie Eilish scooping her first #1, a little, tiny part of me kind of hoped that “Old Town Road” would reign the charts forevermore. Well, I guess that there's always “Panini,” right?

 

LADY GAGA RETURNS TO TWITTER

I love that Lady Gaga goes months without properly tweeting, and then returns with this. We have no choice but to stan this “Italian girl from New York.”

 

NORMANI IS GIVING US “MOTIVATION”

Normani really is THAT bitch, huh? Like the rest of the Internet, I genuinely haven't stopped watching the “Motivation” video ever since it dropped on Thursday. Suddenly, that basketball move seems a whole lot more impressive knowing that she did it on only four hours sleep!

 

KHALID SURPRISES CLAIRO FOR HER BIRTHDAY

Khalid dressed in an Elmo outfit is at once the most endearing and creepy thing that I've ever seen in my life. Judging by Clairo's facial expression in the below photo, she's very much in agreement.

 

CHARLI XCX IS AN EMOTIONAL WRECK

Exclusive footage of me clicking the retweet button:

 

LANA DEL REY IS...RETIRING?

Erm, I'm sorry, but, these better be some goddamn lyrics that you're quoting here, Lana. Don't think that you can retire after making our sorry asses wait this long for Normal Fucking Rockwell!.

 

CHANCE THE RAPPER REALLY DID GET WENDY'S TO BRING BACK SPICY CHICKEN NUGGETS

Just in case you needed reminding where Chance the Rapper's loyalties lie when it comes to The Great Chicken War.

 

HALSEY QUIT SMOKING

Halsey quit smoking AND got thicc? Erm, winning, much? Now if only she could forward that chain e-mail to me for, ahem, “research purposes...”

 

ARIANA GRANDE ON THE GIFT OF SINGING

And now for our weekly reminder why we must Protect Ariana Grande at All Costs™. Thank you for sharing your gift with us, Ari <3.

 

MEGAN THEE STALLION REVEALS THAT SHE WROTE “CASH SHIT” BETWEEN CLASSES

As Hot Girl Summer comes to a conclusion and we turn our attention to September, how's this for some back-to-school inspiration from Megan Thee Stallion? “Productivity goals” doesn't even cover it...
