15 Of The Dumbest Tweets That Will Make You Lose Faith In Humanity

Twitter is an online news and massive social networking company that has completely changed the way we interact online and the way information is shared. Despite all of the good that Twitter is used for, it also exposes the foolishness and ridiculousness in people. Sometimes these people are able to showcase the depths of human stupidity in 140 characters or less. You really have to question how these people have gotten so far in life without any common sense. On average, about 6,000 tweets are sent every second, which results in about 2 billion tweets every year! With so many tweets being sent over the years, getting on this list is quite an accomplishment. Here are 15 of the dumbest tweet that will make you lose faith in humanity.

15 Rosetta Stone

I don’t think we can cringe any harder after reading that tweet. There is so much wrong with this tweet that we want to go lie down and then later pray for our future generations. It seems that this person confused the language-learning program, Rosetta Stone, for the civil rights activist, Rosa Parks. We’re not really sure how someone can make that kind of mistake, considering the only similarities are the “Ros” of the two names. Furthermore, Rosa Parks has nothing to do with equal rights for “gays.” Rosa Parks did, however, sit on “dhat” bus for equal rights. Parks was a civil rights activist and is known as “the mother of the freedom movement.” If we have to explain all of this to this person, there really isn’t much hope.

14 "Die Of Beaties"

Do you have any idea how many people die each year from "beaties"? Approximately 3.4 million people die of "beaties" every year. While the exact cause of type 1 “beaties” is unknown, we do know that our bodies need to bring insulin to store and use the sugar and fat from the food we eat. People with “beaties” have little or no insulin in their bodies. As a result, instead of being transported into your cells, the sugar builds up in the bloodstream. Despite what people think, cookies, cakes, and snacks don’t cause “beaties." Sugar doesn’t cause “beaties,” however, too much sugar can influence whether a person gets type 2 “beaties” or not. Hopefully those cookies, cakes, and all of its sugar don’t have any harmful effects on her. We would hate for her to die of “beaties.”

13 The Smell of Colon

Scents can trigger certain memories. This means that "colons" do more than just make someone smell good. When it comes to picking the right kind of "colon," you want to pick a scent that compliments you. We think that the best "colon" would be an Eau de toilette. Wait a minute; we have to apologize. We just realized that we have been using the word “colon” when referring to “cologne.” That’s really embarrassing. It’s almost as embarrassing as spraying someone’s colon on yourself so you can smell like that person all day. Unfortunately, no one told this girl that cologne is not spelled phonetically, so what she wrote sounds absolutely disgusting. That’s a pretty bad mistake to make considering that someone’s colon is the last thing you want to smell.

12 President Barner

The nerve of him. Where does President Barraco Barner get off getting involved with Russia? That is some scary stuff! But more importantly, how does someone get the name of the President of The United States of America wrong? The President of the United States is arguably the most well known person on the entire planet. We’re not sure which is worse: the fact that this girl did not know the President’s name or the fact that her tweet got 2,242 retweets and 801 favorites. In her defense, this tweet was from 2014 so President Barack Obama had only been President for the last 5 years! Also, what is she even referring to when she says that he is getting involved with Russia? Where does this girl get any of her information from?

11 Can’t Get Pregnant

Like the old saying goes, you can’t get pregnant at night because the man’s sperm is asleep. Wait a minute, that’s not an old saying. That is just a completely and utterly ridiculous statement that seems almost too dumb to believe. Everyone knows that sperm are nocturnal and that they sleep during the day and are awake at night! (We’re obviously joking of course.) We had to say that as a disclaimer, because clearly, there are people who will believe anything they hear. For whatever reason, how this woman has not gotten pregnant yet from this way of thinking is nothing short of a miracle. For tweeting something so unbelievably dumb, we hate to think that she, and the 12 people that retweeted her, are allowed to reproduce.

10 Eye Witness

We hate to have to admit it, but when you’re right, you’re right. The Real Diamond J is absolutely right. In terms of History, we can never truly know if any event has ever occurred if none of us were actually there to witness it in person. This must mean that Diamond J was never actually born because none of us were there to witness it. The Internet must have never been invented because we weren’t there to witness that either. Do you know what this means?! This means that our whole lives have been a lie. Unless we were physically present at an important event throughout the course of human history, then nothing is real. Thank you Real Diamond J for opening up our eyes to the truth.

9 Labor Day

Oh boy, where to even start. The problem here, obviously, is that this person didn’t realize that labor has two meanings. The first meaning is physical work, and the second is the process of giving birth. That would be kind of a weird thing to have an entire holiday for: giving birth. Labor Day, which is a Federal Holiday and is celebrated on the first Monday in September, honors the American Labor Movement. Don’t get us wrong though. While it’s great to be thankful for all mothers who went into labor for their kids, we really believe that there should be a holiday to honor our mothers. Maybe we should call it something so that people don’t get confused. What would we even call a holiday like that where we are thankful for our mothers? Hmm…How about Mother’s Day?

8 "Hollow Cost"

Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse, we present to you the "hollow cost." If you were to look up the definition of the word 'dumb' in the dictionary, you would see a picture of this tweet. The “Holocaust” was a genocide in Nazi Germany that resulted in the deaths of over six million Jews. If it wasn’t bad enough that he thinks the holocaust is pronounced and spelled, "hollow cost," he then says that he’s tired of learning about this “sh*t.” It is extremely important to learn about the Holocaust because those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it. We’re assuming of course that by hollow cost, he actually meant the Holocaust. He very well may have been referring to something he learned in an economics class about the cost-basis of something. We’re not sure; we didn’t really pay too much attention in our econ class....

7 The Fresh Prince of Bel Air

It never occurred to us before that Will Smith looks like the actor form The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. But they really do look alike the more you stare at the picture. Not to mention, both Will Smith and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air actor are from West Philadelphia, born and raised. On the playground is where they spent most of their days. Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool and all shooting some b-ball… They’re the same person! It’s not even as if they look “kinda” alike. They look exactly alike! No only did Will Smith star in the television show, but that was also his rap name when he started out! Doesn’t this guy know that Will Smith is an actor? So you have to figure that if an actor looks like someone from a television show, that’s probably because it is them!

6 Happy Birthday Earth

Shh, listen. Did you guys just hear that? That was the sound of a million palms hitting people’s faces. When the clock struck 12:00 on January 1st 2014, this girl thought that the Earth had just turned 2,014 years old. If only this girl knew how dumb this statement truly was. The Earth is nowhere near 2000 + years old. It’s actually more like 4.5 billion years old. 2000 vs. 4.5 billion; that’s not even kind of close. You see, the year on the calendar is 2017 Anno Domini (A.D.). We use the Gregorian calendar and anything before 2017 is known as B.C.E, or Before the Common Era. What is going on with our school systems? We don’t know if we can take any more of this stupidity.

5 Florida

We can’t believe it. All of this time we thought that Florida was a part of the United States. Oh, how foolish we were. As all us, or should I say most of us, know, Florida is very much one of the 50 states. However, there seem to be some 50 state deniers. Take this next girl for example. This girl wants to get out of the United States for a bit, so she’s looking forward to going to Florida. Even this girl’s friend picked up on the stupidity of what this girl had just tweeted and said what we were all thinking. However, even after her friend commented, the girl still didn’t realize that she tweeted anything dumb. So in case you were wondering if this girl was just joking when she tweeted that out, rest assured, she was not.

4 Tuesday The 13th

Do any of you guys remember back in October of 2015 when Friday the 13th fell on a Tuesday? I know, right? How crazy was that? Friday the 13th won’t fall on a Tuesday again for another 26 years. Clearly a lot of people we’re excited about this incredible event because this person’s tweet got a remarkable 897 retweets and 914 likes. Wait a minute. Something doesn’t add up here. How could a Friday fall on a Tuesday? Normally, something like that is impossible, which is what makes this tweet so unbelievably dumb. We can’t even begin to rationalize what this person was thinking when they wrote this. Then again, if we were able to understand how Friday the 13th can fall on a Tuesday, we would be ashamed of ourselves.

3 911

Does this girl know that this is one of the dumbest tweets that has ever been written? #Wondering. Does this girl really believe that the police phone number, 911, has only been in existence for 16 years? And that the only reason that the phone number is 911 is because of the September 11th attacks? Let’s just say for arguments sake that if this happened to be the case, and it very obviously is not, that seems like a very morbid reson to have it that way. We can’t help but wonder what phone number did this girl think we used to call in order to contact the police before September 11th 2001. Did she think it was 811? 1-800-Police? 867-5309? It looks like she’ll have to keep #wondering.

2 Accepted

You know a tweet is really dumb when it costs you your admission into the college you wanted to go to. Here’s a helpful tip: You don’t have to tweet everything that comes to your mind. Why on earth would this guy think it would be the right thing to go on Twitter and bash the Head of Admissions of the school that hasn’t even accepted him yet?! If that wasn’t bad enough, the person who tweeted this didn’t even offer a sincere apology when the school tweeted back at him. And he didn’t even bother to spell out the word “please” for them. We would say that maybe college isn’t for everyone, but considering how dumb this person is, we really recommend that they get as much of an education as they possibly can.

1 Bonjour

Bonjour comment allez-vous? That’s Arabic for “What’s up, how are you?” We’re sorry we can’t say anything else, but that’s pretty much all of the Arabic that we know. We have to confess that we stole the “Bonjour” part from this girl’s shirt. We had foolishly forgotten the Arabic word for “What’s up?” Okay, clearly, we were just joking, but our first reaction to this girl’s tweet was “You cannot be serious.” Our second reaction was, “Has this girl ever seen Arabic letters before?” Does this mean that this girl thinks that all of the French words she knows are actually Arabic words? I mean come on; there are certain words in different languages that everybody knows. Hola means “Hello” in Spanish and Bonjour means “Hello” in French. We also heard that this girl wants to check out the Eiffel Tower in Abu Dhabi.
