19 Funny Tweets to Start Your Day

Twitter has become one of the most popular websites and dominant forms of social media in the world since its launch in 2006, serving as a one-stop shop to check in on friends, family, celebrities, and politicians alike. The microblogging site has also provided its roughly 240 million monthly users with a perfect platform for their amusing thoughts and hilarious observations.

Twitter is rife with jokes that deal directly with universal situations and can quickly go viral, like comedian Andy Milonakis’ wildly popular tweet in May 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic: "Congratulations to the Astronauts that left Earth today. Good choice."

A funny tweet can go from unread to “trending” within a matter of minutes — whether its author is cracking a joke during a major event like the Super Bowl or the Oscars, or sharing a hilarious thought dealing with their everyday lives. Here are 19 funny tweets to get your day rolling.
