Tweet Surrender


Over 3,500,000,000 tweets are sent every week. Just count them if you don’t believe us. We ran a fine comb through the lot to bring you the most insightful and weirdest posts of the last seven days. First up, let’s have a glimpse into the glamorous life of Paramore vocalist, Hayley Williams.

We’ll reserve judgement on Tidal for now, but since when did Jay Z become a mayor?

For some unknown reason, this tweet slipped us by last week. But we didn’t know Lita was a fan of Battlestar Galactica too. Live long and prosper and all that.
