You suggested a trial, first. What's the issue?

Just sent Twitter a blistering email calling them fascist simps that I don’t think will improve my case but fuck em. I should get off all social media anyway. Don’t miss Facebook.

I stay on Twitter because it allows me to tell people directly to fuck themselves, as I just did to the wheelchair shitbag Congressman.

Perhaps next time, ask him if being in a wheelchair makes it easier to lick boots.

I keep quitting and coming back to twitter and I'm avoiding telling people to fuck themselves. Famous people aren't reading their replies and I don't get the point in engaging with random trumpies. A ny post headline came up in my feed about a random NYC suicide and there are thousands of replies joking about how it's another Hillary murder. And there is one or two same responses about how stupid and sick it is to make a random suicide political, and the counter response is what a sensitive liberal snowflake. Millions of Americans are sick fucks and twitter is such depressing reminder of it

You guys follow the wrong twitter feeds. I don’t follow any of that shit because it’s unavoidable anyway and I’d rather see a post from Mina kimes saying devonta smith wears women’s 00 gap pants.

C’mon man.

1) Can’t Hardly Wait is a great, underrated movie.
2) Ethan Hawke is a great actor even if a pretentious douche which doesn’t exactly make him an anomaly in Hollywood.

Different strokes for different folks but I think he's probably the funniest thing (consistently, at least) on Twitter.

It was really a point in time account that you can't enjoy nearly as much now, even if you would have then, if that makes sense. It was really good when it was completely unique.

Like most comedy if you have to explain it, it's not funny. That said, I think dril is brilliant because he takes advantage of the medium (Twitter) completely. Consider the idea of "accidental dril" tweets (consider reading the whole thread below):

To me it's along the lines of Mitch Hedberg or Steven Wright. Absurdist stuff presented with a straight face.
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

I don’t operate on his genius-level intellectual plain but I honestly don’t know if he’s making fun of Can’t Hardly Wait, Ethan Embry or Ethan Hawke or if it’s the latter what the joke even is.
