The COVID-19 pandemic was a rough time for the entire world. Folks took to Twitter (now known as X) to stay connected, voice frustrations, and crack jokes. Tweets from 2020 and 2021 feel like dispatches from another time and illustrate just how surreal the time was. We decided to take a look back at viral Tweets from 2020 and early 2021 to revisit the hilarious things folks had to say.
These Tweets would not make sense to someone in 2019. In fact, they would be downright unbelievable and outrageous. So, let’s venture back in time when laughter really was the best (and only) medicine.
It Would Have Gone Even Better
Do you remember when Apple did this and made it nearly impossible to remove the album from your phone? Like the pandemic, it was also unbelievable.
For the many of us who were not popular in high school, this Tweet hits home. Let those girlies be their own demise.
Who was out there working on their fitness during the pandemic? We know you’re out there. We don’t know what you were thinking but we hope you’re still in the best shape of your life.
It Was a Paranoid Time
This Tweet is brilliant because it shows how we all turned into hypochondriacs due to the virus. We scrutinized every little headache, stomach bug, and soar throat. The plague brain was real.
What a Waste
What a hilarious Tweet! Most of us are just wasting our lives away but it felt intentional in 2020. Be kind to yourself, folks.
What Did We Have to Lose?
This Tweet is so brilliant. You know this trick, right? If you get your phone wet, you can throw it into a mountain of uncooked rice that will pull the moisture out. We don’t think this worked on 2020.
This Tweet got over half a million likes because it felt so relatable. The early days of the pandemic were so terrifying and unbelievable. It really felt like hell.
So Much Zooming
We feel so bad for the young people who had to survive endless Zoom sessions for school. Not learning in-person had to have so tough. This Tweet perfectly captures it.
Historic Is an Understatement
One thing is certain, the pandemic was a once in a generation ordeal. History books will teach about banging pots and pans to cheer on nurses and other medical professionals on the front lines of the fight.
Live your life! The stimulus checks were a brilliant way to help folks out as well as massage the economy. The government should think about doing them once a month forever.
When You Knew What Was Up
The people who understood the importance of masking should not have been controversial, but this is America, and everything is stupid. Hats off to those who masked up and stayed that way.
What Were They Thinking?
While most of us were staying home to keep ourselves and others safe, some could not be bothered to skip a vacation for the greater good. This Tweet should be framed.
Getting that first hair cut after coming out of quarantine felt wild. How will we ever convey that odd feeling to the kids who are to young to remember? This Tweet will do.
Priorities certainly changes and many have stuck since the pandemic. This Tweet is perfect for the person who felt all dressed up with nowhere to go.
Michelle Tells It Like It Is
It really wasn’t that hard. People made it out to be the most oppressive thing in the world but it was just a piece of fabric. We endorse any Tweet that includes Michelle Visage.
Time Got Weird
Time seemed to stretch and bend in the most unusual way throughout the pandemic. That’s what makes this Tweet so relatable. It was like time stood still.
They Did Not Get It
Teachers are superheroes but sometimes they can’t always “read the room.” This Tweet is perfect because no matter how otherworldly things got, they tried to move on as if it was all normal.
Who out there living in a cramped apartment got a bit of cabin fever during lockdown? While celebs were traipsing around their mansions, the rest of us were trying to find the best spot to work from home.
Zoom really was like the only outlet most of us had. This Tweet is great because it remarks on just how tied to it we became. No. more. Zoom.
The person who referred to lockdown as “locky D,” deserves some form of punishment. Now that we’ve seen this Tweet, we can’t stop thinking about it either.
People Never Change
As much as the pandemic stalled things, it also became an excuse to not do stuff. The vaccines mostly fixed that but we get the sentiment in this Tweet.
There Were Better Options
Moderna and Pfizer had the best vaccines and we honestly don’t know why anyone would go with Johnson & Johnson. It’s already a hassle, so why not make the most of it?
Keep It Up
This Tweet came for us. Masks are great for more reasons than just one!
Teachers Were Doing Their Best
This Tweet is impeccable because the whole notion of a “field trip” is to be out “in the field.” Being trapped in the house and glued to a screen is not the same.
