How can it be over for another year?!
We felt the excitement building up for months, kept revising our list of YouTubers to meet and panels to attend, and after an unforgettable weekend, Summer in the City is over for yet another year. Why do the things we look forward to the most happen in the blink of an eye? We shouldn’t be too sad, though. As with previous gatherings, this year’s SitC left us with memories that will last us a lifetime, and it reminded us why we love YouTube and its creators as much as we do.
If you were like us, you probably spent the weekend taking in all the gathering had to offer, which meant you missed out on a whole host of tweets our faves were sharing throughout the week. Fear not! Despite all the running around we were doing, we still managed to keep up-to-date with our social media. So sit back and let’s get reading this edition of Tweets of the Week!
Such a disappointment
THREE HOURS waiting for the fucking Jurassic Park water ride at Universal Studios and it was fucking shite. Exciting for roughly three seconds. Didn’t even get fucking wet.
I welcome death.

We feel like this tweet is metaphor for life, Jacob Trueman. We get all excited for things, only to be disappointed time and time again…
We must protect
psa: @chiwithaC is a comedy genius
,, protect at all costs
— taha is at sitc hello (@KhanStopMe) August 11, 2019
We can confirm this tweet from Taha Khan is 100% accurate. Lucia Keskin is THE comedy genius of YouTube and we need to make sure we protect her at all costs.
The M&Ms thief
ALSO (yes I’m still angry and NO I’m not done) I was the ONLY person sitting in front of her so like ???? they were obviously mine ?????
honestly it starts with petty crime but it’s a downwards spiral from there – she’ll be in prison by the end of the year for theft
— Jack Edwards (@jackbenedwards) August 9, 2019
We would have went off on her, Jack Edwards! It’s only a small step from stealing M&Ms to committing a higher-scale crime, like bank robbery. We definitely agree with you that she’ll be in prison by the end of the year.
Gotta love autocorrect
if you’re having a bad day auto correct had my life by changing a woman called Martas name to “Smart Ass” in a professional email. that’s right. Hi, Smart Ass x theres this months rent thrown into the thames.

Normally we hate autocorrect, but then wonderfully hilarious incidents like this happen. We’re sorry we’re laughing at your misery, Becky James, but we can’t help it!
The joys of flying
Landed!! We had a woman in front of us throwing up and a child screaming, I got maybe 20 minutes of sleep, it’s like 5am for me, I look a mess but I MADE IT!!!
— Chloe Rose (@ArtOfChloeRose) August 8, 2019
Looks like Jack wasn’t the only one who had to endure an awful flight this week. We feel for you, Chloe Rose. There’s nothing worse than a child screaming when you’re on what feels like a never-ending flight. But we’re glad you made it! The UK missed you dearly!
It’s been an eventful day 😅
– interviewed a huge band I listened to on the bus when I was 13
– got accredited press passes for a MASSIVE festival
– got offered a junior snapchat role at a huge news outlet
What. The. FUCK. 😭😭😭

OMG, OMG, OMG! We are SO happy for you, Yasmine Summan! Congrats on everything!
Who actually likes their neighbours?
Do people actually like their neighbours? I feel like nice neighbours are a myth 🧐
— STEPH ✨ (@itsstephtoms) August 9, 2019
We agree, Stephanie Toms. Nice neighbours are a myth, and we feel that anyone who feels differently has been brainwashed by their own into thinking otherwise.
Umm, how about no?
my version of hell would be living with somebody who had all grey interior taste
grey walls, grey carpets, grey curtains, grey bedding, grey sofa, you get the gist
AND SILVER FIXTURES
i cant cope
— gabriella lindley ❄️ (@velvetgh0st) August 11, 2019
Are there actually people out there who want everything in their house to be completely grey, Gabriella Lindley? We’d feel like we were living in a prison!
@ SitC 2019
do i have to put “@ sitc 2019” in my name to be a cool kid
— sam carr (@saamcarr) August 8, 2019
Can you even say you were at Summer in the City if you didn’t put “@ SitC 2019” in your Twitter name, Sam Carr?
Cats know all
When your cat adores your boyfriend, you know he is the one. 🐈💟🧔.
— Rebecca Jane (@BeckieJBrown) August 11, 2019
Cats know all and see all, Rebecca Brown. When they accept someone new into the fold, you know they’re the one. (Our cat has yet to accept any partners we bring home, so we’ve had to dump them on the spot.)
So there you have it…
