Did the UK experience some crazy weather this week or what?
Not only have we had to sit through such sweltering heat that we’ve all debated moving to Antarctica, but we also experienced some pretty intense (and beautiful) thunderstorms. Our houses shook at the rumbles of thunder and our cats refused to get out from under the bed, but, we have to say, the lightning was spectacular and made for a good show. We also feel the storms were a good way of reminding us that, despite the recent sunny weather, we still live in dreary ol’ England, where rain is synonymous with our identity.
Given the stormy weather, chances are many of you reading this spent a lot of time scrolling through the depths of Twitter, taking in the amazing tweets our fave YouTubers were sharing. However, in case you missed them, we’ve gathered our 10 favourites, from some super sweet acts of kindness to the feelings associated with clumsiness… Enjoy!
Such a sweet gesture
Twitter, help me out. Let’s make someone’s day.
1) .. pick someone you care about a lot
2) quote tweet them this and write “knock knock”
3) when they reply ‘who’s there?’, reply ‘someone who thinks _______’ and say something you love about them.
wholesome trends. knock knock

This tweet from Luke Cutforth isn’t necessarily humorous, but we simply couldn’t not include it in this edition of Tweets of the Week. It’s such a lovey trend, and reading the replies simply warms our hearts. (Which we forgot we had.)
Spending all our time on Facebook
one of the perks of working from home is that i can tag people in those 'if they don't respond in 5 minutes they owe you…' and win 99% of the time. i'm currently owed about 17 kfcs, a puppy and 7 holidays..

We don’t think there’s a tweet that better describes the lives of those who freelance and/or work from home, Stephanie Toms.
I have fallen asleep on the tube and leaned on the person on my left and then the person on my right…like 5 times. I’m now that guy

The real question here, Evan Edinger, is whether or not you started snoring. (We know your history.) Then you would have really been that guy.
This is why I failed three times in the first place isn't it? pic.twitter.com/pHXO0R6NJe

Everyone knows driving in London is a special skill, so good on Leena Normington for giving it a shot. We know we would have been crying the entire time.
Just wanna tweet about shoving a 3DS up my ass but y’all are too busy fighting.
— Dean Dobbs (@DeanDobbs) June 3, 2018
We think we need some context for this, Dean Dobbs… On second thought, we’d rather not know.
Some old man stood and watched me struggle to open the door while carrying shit in BOTH my hands & then said WELL DONE as I held the door open with my foot so he could walk in. And FUCK YOU sir.

Whatever happened to common courtesy? Just so you know, we would have held the door open for you, Bianca Oliveira, because, unlike that man, we actually have manners. (Although, not many.)
people think being clumsy is cute but it’s actually p stressful. I have to fill out a fucking risk assessment form to make my breakfast.

This is pretty much a description of our lives, Ant Lightfoot.
That’s why we don’t go outside
Had the lovely idea of drawing outside! Amongst the flowers and plants 🌱
…before I realised my garden is inhabited by a surprising amount of very large, overly friendly bees.
Working inside it is! 🐝
— Hannah Snow 🌈 (@hellohannahsnow) June 3, 2018
This is why we never go outside, Hannah Snow. The risk of being stung by a bee or crawled on by creepy crawlies is just too high… We’re far too squeamish for that.
Oh, how times have changed
"Do you remember where you where when (historic news) happened?"
2006 me: It was 5:42pm. My parents were transfixed to the TV. I had geography homework due. There were yellow flowers on the windowsill
2018 me: idfk prob reading about it on twitter dot hell and groaning audibly
— Liam Dryden (@LiamDrydenEtc) June 1, 2018
It’s amazing how the internet and social media have changed the way we react to and remember events. Liam Dryden has a point.
“Maybe I’ll be a murderer!”
I was just brushing my teeth thinking about the joyful, endless possibilities of life, and how it's impossible to know who I'll be in a few year's time … and then my next thought was "maybe I'll be a murderer!"
— Lex Croucher (@lexcanroar) May 31, 2018
What’s more joyful than thinking about the future and realising you could become a murderer? Absolutely nothing! Well, at least according to Lex Croucher.
So there you have it…
