2016 In Review

Wildest Memes: 22 Memorable Music Tweets From 2016

Social media has never seemed as dangerous as it does today. At the risk of getting too political in a silly post about memes, this is a year that saw a petty tyrant who fires off tweets about how Hamilton is overrated at 6AM ascend to our country’s highest office. Trump’s Twitter presence is entertaining, sure, but it’s also terrifying, and social media in general has increasingly become an echo chamber of self-congratulation and misinformation.

That said, it wasn’t all bad! Social media taketh away, and social media giveth. This year on Twitter, Azealia Banks got banned, beefs were had, memes were posted, and Kanye was somehow at the center of a million different tweetstorms. If you want to be reminded that Twitter can be a force for good, or at least funny, please find our list of 22 memorable music tweets from 2016 below. And if you’re still not convinced, just follow Hillary’s advice and delete your account.
