A lot happened in the year of our lord 2018, and a lot of it happened on Twitter. Beefs were had: Ariana Grande and Piers Morgan, Lana Del Rey and Azealia Banks, Lisa Prank and Elon Musk. Love stories began: Grimes and Elon Musk, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, Kanye and Donald Trump. Memes were posted: tide pods, big dick energy, Gritty. Tweets were tweeted: funny tweets, mean tweets, scary presidential tweets.

Here at Stereogum, we like music, we occasionally like Twitter, and we always like listing things. And so every year, we apply a rigorous scientific methodology to completely objectively determine the year’s most memorable tweets from musicians. We didn’t include Kanye this year, because Kanye mostly makes us sad these days, but you can find the rest below. Honorable mentions: Ryley Walker and Vince Staples’ entire online presences.
