16 Times Twitter Shouldn’t Have Been Free In 2016

Twitter shouldn’t be free. But you know this already, of course–if you are a user of the website, you’ll know that this is where some of the best memes arise, as well as some of the best 140-character jokes in human existence.

It is also the place where the best of examples of “savagery” and pettiness (for lack of better terms) occur, since many times, people tend to forget that the other people on the website are, well, people. This isn’t always good, obviously–the alt-right’s ascension to prominence was definitely aided by this phenomenon, which has resulted in some genuinely horrific trolling–but sometimes it results in a three or four-tweet conversation that never could have happened in real life. In fact, these human (subhuman, perhaps) interactions are so great that they may very well be worthy of some sort of payment. Don’t believe me? Check out these times that Twitter really should have started charging a small monthly membership fee for its invaluable services:

16. But not really, obviously:
