25 of the Funniest Tweets from the Week of August 14, 2023
Just when you think he’s done, Elon Musk continues to play a dangerous game of Jenga with Twitter’s infrastructure. This time, he announced “blocking” is going to be removed from the app, believing that the feature “makes no sense.” While not necessarily fail-proof, the feature, which virtually every social media platform offers, allows for people to distance themselves from stalkers, bigots and those who just don’t understand that their jokes aren’t funny.

Regardless, we shouldn’t have to suffer at the hands of yet another tantrum.
Before the floodgates open back up, here are some funny tweets from accounts that might’ve had you blocked. There’s an inexperienced driver in more ways than one, chain-smoking dogs, Virginia Woolf’s inadvertent advertisement for Sour Patch Kids and much, much more.
