The Funniest #RIPTwitter Tweets

If you haven’t heard the news, Twitter might be about to commit suicide. A report came out yesterday that the social media service was going to switch to an algorithm-based feed that would no longer organize tweets in reverse chronological order. You know how Facebook splits your feed between “Most Recent” and “Top Stories,” and always defaults to the latter? You know how only a fraction of your Facebook followers actually sees what you post? You know how that really sucks and has made Facebook almost useless as a means of communication? Well, Twitter supposedly wants to do that. This new algorithm business is supposedly going to be opt-in, so you don’t have to deal with it if you want, but that didn’t stop basically all of Twitter reacting in complete contempt. And justifiably so: this would completely kill Twitter as it’s been used for the last decade, and render it almost irrelevant. #RIPTwitter quickly surged to the top of trending topics, and remains near the top now, over a day later. And since Twitter is crucial for comedians, there have been some pretty hilarious #RIPTwitter tweets over the last 24 hours. Here are our favorites, from the following people:
