3.121: Social Media Superstar


Novelty Twitter accounts are probably some of the worst things that ever happened to the world. There’s a few different kinds:

– Ones with names like “omg_funny_junk” that just post stupid jokes or observations millennials can “relate to”.

– Celebrity parodies that post the same stuff as above.

– Accounts created after a notable event in the news, like a hurricane, animal, or something intangible. See: Adele Dazeem, Hurricane Sandy, Gardiner Deer, Rob Ford’s crack.

The worst part of all this is that these things make crazy money. Like enough for an income! Fortune really does favour the mediocre.
