Blue Monday doesn’t exist.
We know everyone is talking about how today is the saddest day of the year, but that’s a lie. As Hazel Hayes tweeted out this morning, Blue Monday is just a ploy by the travel industry to make us book holidays. Unfortunately, bad mental health doesn’t just occur on a single day every year. It can occur at any time, so it’s important we surround ourselves with people we trust, develop positive coping mechanisms and reach out to professionals should we be in need of extra support.
If you happen to be feeling down today, we hope you know there are people in your corner. Whether they be your friends, family, colleagues or even support lines like Childline (0800 1111) or Mind UK (0300 123 3393), there are people you can turn to in times of need. And if you’re simply in need of a distraction or a smile, know that we’ll happily oblige. We’re hoping this edition of Tweets of the Week helps accomplish just that. Remember, you’re not alone, and you never will be.
*NSYNC chose the right career path
Why would @NSYNC make terrible stockbrokers?
They always tell you to buy, buy, buy.
— Emma Blackery (@emmablackery) January 19, 2020
Normally, the entire office would be groaning over how terrible a pun this is, but how can we when it led to a hour-long dance party to *NSYNC? Emma Blackery, we thank for you making today’s lunch break one to remember!
Oh, that John Green
noah just found out that “john green“ the author is “john green” from youtube
— corry 🛸 (@notcorry) January 19, 2020
Considering how many YouTubers have become authors over the years, we’re surprised Noah Finn Adams never put this together, Corry. Granted, John Green was an author before he joined YouTube, so we can understand how such a confusion could occur.
Just found out from my editor that my debut novel has broken through that very-difficult-to-smash ceiling of 10k book sales, in the first six months…her sales report covered physical copy sales from shops/audiobook/ebook etc…I am CHUFFED 😭 Don’t know what to do with myself! pic.twitter.com/e96W0dORMc

We are so incredibly proud of you, Melanie Murphy! If there’s one YouTuber who deserves all this success, it’s you. We know we might be getting ahead of ourselves, but we can’t wait for your next release! (We sincerely hope there will be one.)
We need this NOW
Can someone who makes those video essays on YouTube please do one about the history of baked beans. Thanks
— Lucy Moon 🌻 (@iamnotlucymoon) January 18, 2020
We’re honestly surprised no one has filmed a video essay about the history of baked beans, Lucy Moon. Can someone please upload one ASAP?
someone for real saw my Instagram story with some books I’d borrowed from the library and recalled EVERY 👏🏼 SINGLE 👏🏼 ONE 👏🏼 so that I can’t use them
what a sad little life Jane
— Jack Edwards (@jackbenedwards) January 15, 2020
Wow, we don’t think we’ve ever seen someone be as petty as Jane! They obviously doesn’t want you to graduate, Jack Edwards. How can you get passing grades if you can’t take out the proper library books?
Names are not that hard!
giving my surname over the phone makes me seriously anxious. I’m aware “Liguori” is not a common name so I spelled it out letter by letter and this is the follow up email I received. an attempt was not even made. pic.twitter.com/1cLZ4vKWcN
— PJ (@kickthepj) January 17, 2020
We think everyone can agree that people spelling our names wrong is one of the most annoying things ever, especially when they manage to still get it wrong after you’ve spelt it out for them. Some people just like to torture us, PJ Liguori.
No live music
Some people just have talent of being able to get concert tickets, I am not one of those people
— Sophie Foster ✨ (@Sophie_FosterXx) January 17, 2020
We too don’t seem to have this talent, Sophie Foster. Do you know how bad the FOMO is when we see our friends at all these gigs, while we’re stuck at home, crying because our web browser froze before we were able to buy our own tickets? IT’S AWFUL.
That awkward moment when someone turns up wearing a similar outfit. pic.twitter.com/lsPRi0chtd
— Gary C (@oohgaryc) January 17, 2020
It’s SO embarrassing, Gary C. We don’t think there’s a worse social faux pas than two people showing up to the same place wearing the same outfit.
Where’s the melon?
i bought a melon in my food shop a few days ago and i remember taking it out of the shopping bag but i haven’t seen it since 😂 where tf is me melon?
— gabriella ✨ (@velvetgh0st) January 10, 2020
Are you 100% sure you actually purchased the melon, Gabriella Lindley?
Pizza causes a lot of sadness
Pizza Hut just emailed to tell me I have to claim my free slices before they expire and then I opened the email only for them to tell me I have 0.0 slices ☹️🍕
— Calum McSwiggan (@CalumMcSwiggan) January 18, 2020
We don’t think we’ve heard of such a horrible betrayal, Calum McSwiggan. Pizza Hut have taken your heart and stomped all over it, and they should be ashamed of themselves.
So there you have it…
