15 Amazing Tweets That Will Redefine Your Entire Concept Of #SquadGoals

Given that there’s just about a month left in 2015, it’s about time to start looking back to consider what, exactly, the best parts of the year were. It’s hard to choose, for 2015 was, if nothing else, truly a year of pop culture blessings. There was, thanks to Skrillex and some strategic weeping at the VMAs, the redemption of Justin Bieber and subsequent rebirth of nationwide Bieber Fever. Drake’s “Hotline Bling” video (and subsequent meme-ification of said video). The Poot Lovato meme. Those llamas that escaped from a zoo, galloped along a highway, and, for a few brief moments, united the nation.

Personally, though, I think the best thing to come out of the year of our lord 2015–which, as you can see, had so much to offer–is the popularization of squad. Or, rather, the hashtag squad (#SQUAD, #SquadGoals, Fetty Wap’s “squaw” noise, etc.) that is used to identify one’s core group of friends. Obviously, “squad” existed before now (more on that here), but this past year was truly the apex of the term.  “We have celebrity squads–Taylor Swift’s squad, Drake’s squad, Jennifer Lawrence’s squad, to name but a few–but the beauty of the word “squad” is that you don’t have to be a celebrity to have one. Sure, it helps, anyone can make their own. Anyone can be a part of a squad. Anyone can make their own #SquadGoals, for this is America.

To celebrate this amazing year of squads, here are some tweets that will most definitely give you some pretty strong #SquadGoals:
