Some artists prefer to work in oil paints, others in watercolors. Those who are particularly dexterous may choose to sculpt their work out of clay. But the most under-appreciated of our more modern artists choose to utilize a more unorthodox medium: in a tweet, with a mere 140 characters at their disposal.
While you might scoff at the idea of a tweet constituting a work of art, let me ask you: has an oil painting ever caused you to laugh until you almost peed your pants?
I doubt it
(But if one has, then you are certainly going to the right museums.)
Here are some of those imaginative and unexpectedly delightful tweets which truly deserve to be memorialized in some sort of gilded frame. They may not be the art recognized by high society, but they’re definitely entertaining.
