Hornets. Fancy coffee. Neil Sedaka? What could it all mean? Find out in this week’s Tweet Surrender.

Devin’s tweet got us thinking about the winged pests. Here’s a fact: hornets are wasps of the genus Vespa, and closely related to mopeds. Hang on, that can’t be right.

That might be the least rock ‘n’ roll tweet ever.

If ‘party’ is a polite way of saying ‘you’re rubbish at shaving’, then party.

That’s comedian and sometime Yo La Tengo percussionist Todd Barry with some bloke. A tennis player from Denmark or something.

It’s not even lar-tay, mate. See?
