What’s Funny About Twitter?

Cartoons and thoughts about the little powerful app

I’m a more than a little annoyed that Elon Musk bought Twitter. What will that mean for the app? Too soon to tell, but I’m worried. I fear it will devolve into more negativity and unleash attacks and frankly, not be the Twitter that I’ve loved. I am aware many don’t like Twitter, and I understand why but I have found a way to use it, enjoy it and benefit by it . I have met many good people on Twitter who have become friends.

Aside from being on Twitter, I have done many cartoons about Twitter. This color one below was my first one, drawn during the Arab Spring. Because of the way twitter in part fueled or reported those events, many Americans were beginning to notice Twitter. And use it. This cartoon is making fun of those Americans. Myself included.

Then I have done assorted ones over the years about people and using the funny app.

Of course children, we gotta have the sandbox cartoon.

And relationships.

This was done during the 2016 election, if I remember correctly.

And of course this is a spin-off of AA, aimed at those of us who are addicted to Twitter.

And yes, we have to make fun of how Twitter might be grounds for divorce.
