Actually, this will be Tweets of the Day, because it takes several of them to tell the story properly. But it's absolutely worth it. Stick around all the way through. But then, these are tweets, it shouldn't be much of a challenge reading them all.
The tale begins with a mother sending out the following tweet about her adored son.
As you might imagine, that lead to a spate of scathing replies on Twitter. Many were extremely funny, but rather than post a dozen, I've picked a couple that will stand in for them. This first is one of my favorites, for its loopiness.
But this other is my favorite, but for the pure cleverness -- and strangeness of it.
However, this is the best. Not a scathing response at all, because it's VERY different, as you'll see. I shall say more more other than it's 100% on the level, and there have been several interviews with him. He's never had a Twitter account before, but felt compelled to sign up. Adding to the fun, note the Twitter-handle he chose --
Too hilarious. He's said that he was flabbergasted by the tweet and response, and does not even remotely support "#HimToo" and isn't quite sure what drove his mother to post that, since she's very quiet, low key and has never done anything like it before. And he says that even she isn't quite sure why she did it. But there's no animosity over it in the slightest, and by this point he says that even his mother is able to laugh about it.
Fortunately, she didn't use her name in her original tweet, and her son intentionally kept her name private in his interviews. Happily, the family has a fairly common last name, so it can stay reasonably private.
