10 TWITTER MOMENTS: LIL NAS X IS POSTPONING HIS BIRTHDAY
With a quarter of the world's population currently in quarantine, social media has undoubtedly become a lifeline for many of us over the last few weeks. Don't get me wrong, Twitter and Instagram feeds are still fiery pits of anxiety-inducing hell for the most part. But social media has also proved to be a vital tool for staying connected with friends, family, and, yes, even bands and artists during this time of global crisis. From livestreaming to the building of collaborative playlists, in some respects, it's like we're closer to musicians than ever before. Without further ado, then, let's check in to see what our favorites have been up to over the last seven days with the latest edition of We Are: The Guard's 10 Twitter Moments, featuring Lil Nas X, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, and lots more.
LIL NAS X IS POSTPONING HIS BIRTHDAY

Lil Nas X sees you postponing your album release date and raises you postponing his whole entire birthdate. Something tells me June 9th is about to be lit!

CHARLIE PUTH CAN'T STOP EATING
All I do is fucking eat.
— Charlie Puth (@charlieputh) March 30, 2020
Charlie Puth is quite literally all of us during this lockdown. No, really, I'm going to emerge double the size once I finally make it through my quarantine snacks (Hot Cheetos, Hot Cheetos, and more Hot Cheetos, if you were wondering).
ALISON WONDERLAND IS GETTING THROUGH QUARANTINE WITH ANIMAL CROSSING
My mum asked me if I went outside today and I told her yes. pic.twitter.com/Jr42uVZolx

OMG! The relatability! Seriously, who needs “the outside world” when you can have Animal Crossing? BRB, got me some fishing to do!
P.S. DROP THE FRIEND CODE, ALISON!

PHOEBE BRIDGERS WANTS US TO PUT THE JEANS DOWN

WHERE IS THE LIE?
ARIANA GRANDE IS EMBRACING HER NATURAL CURLS
get a load a dis pic.twitter.com/2SPx6f3fbA
— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) March 30, 2020
I'm sorry, but, Ariana Grande embracing her naturally curly hair is undoubtedly the best thing that's happened during this whole entire quarantine so far. “Stunning” really doesn't cover it. BRB, getting me a perm!
your natural hair/curls is a world of its own... a magnificent beauty you are inside and out/ made up or natural ... I love you...

MILEY CYRUS HAS BEEN CUTTING HER OWN HAIR DURING QUARANTINE
Waaaayy tooooo late pic.twitter.com/A0ttODNGEh
— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) March 30, 2020
Me: I'm dealing with quarantine fine.
Also me: *Cuts bangs* *Shaves head* *Cries on bathroom floor*
P.S. TEACH US YOUR WAYS, ROSALÍA!

WASH! YOUR! KAMEHAMEHANDS!
TIERRA WHACK IS “STUCK”
— Tierra Whack (@TierraWhack) March 28, 2020
Tierra Whack is officially the new “Weird” Al Yankovic. This reinvention of Alanis Morissette's hit “Ironic” is everything I need to get through this lockdown and more. I mean it, when Tierra sang “Sick of being stuck in the house/I wanna go out now,” I really felt that.
JAMES BLUNT NEEDS NEW LYRICS
Singing “I saw your face in a crowded place” suddenly seems a little dated.
— James Blunt (@JamesBlunt) March 27, 2020
LMAO! Okay, everybody, it's time to help James Blunt write some timely new lyrics for his hit “You're Beautiful.” I'm thinking “I saw your face, from 6 feet away,” but I'm sure you guys can come up with something better than that.
During lockdown, while many other artists are doing mini-concerts from their homes, I thought I’d do you all a favour and not.

DOJA CAT IN QUARANTINE: CHAPTER TWO
I heard Doja Cat removed one of her bottom ribs so she can suck her own dick
