10 TWITTER MOMENTS: CORONAVIRUS SPECIAL

3/18/20
10 Twitter Moments

Ever wondered if this generation would tweet through the apocalypse when it finally came to it? Well...it turns out...YES, YES THEY ABSOLUTELY WOULD. And that goes for our favorite bands, artists, and producers, too!!! No, really – I'd actually planned on making this column a coronavirus-free zone, but apparently CORONAVIRUS IS LITERALLY ALL ANYONE WANTS TO TALK ABOUT RIGHT NOW. Consequently, the latest edition of We Are: The Guard's 10 Twitter Moments has mutated into a COVID-19 special of sorts. It's not all darkly depressing, however. In fact, I think you'll enjoy a laugh or two while scrolling through the following tweets from Jared Leto, The Killers, Taylor Swift, and much more...

WE'VE OFFICIALLY REACHED PEAK JARED LETO

Exclusive footage of Jared Leto leaving his silent retreat and returning to a world on lockdown:

 

ARIANA GRANDE IS A SOCIAL-DISTANCING QUEEN

SHE *CLAP* SAID *CLAP* WHAT *CLAP* SHE *CLAP* SAID *CLAP*. We stan a social-distancing advocate and queen... In all seriousness – make sure to do as Ariana says and think of the vulnerable during this scary-ass time <3.

 

THE CARDI B “CORONAVIRUS” REMIX IS THE SICK BOP WE DESERVE

If there's one good thing that's come from COVID-19, it has to be the Cardi B “Coronavirus” remix. It's already climbing the iTunes chart and it's looking like it'll hit #1 in the not-so-distant future. Well, a sick bop is a sick bop, right??? Everybody now! “CORONAVIRUS! SH*T IS REAL!!!”

 

DILLON FRANCIS HAS BOUGHT A BIDET

LMAOOO. Leave it to Dillon Francis to keep us laughing during a global pandemic. I honestly thought the dude was on to something with his bidet, but now I'm thinking I'll stick to queuing around the block for my next roll of TP.

 

THE KILLERS SHOW US HOW TO WASH OUR HANDS

Nothing to see here, just The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers officially ENDING CORONAVIRUS with this hand-washing remix of “Mr. Brightside.” “Happy Birthday” x 2 could never...

P.S. DOES HE SHAKE HIS HANDS TO THE FINAL DRUM BEAT???

 

MILEY CYRUS IS BACK WITH MORE HANNAH MONTANA CONTENT

Just in case you needed another excuse to sign up to Disney+ during the quarantine.

 

DIPLO IS SELF-ISOLATING

I'M NOT CRYING, YOU'RE CRYING! Okay – so it's not often Diplo shows us his serious side, but the man definitely wrote this tweet about going into self-imposed isolation from the heart. STAY STRONG, DIP!

 

JAMES BLAKE AND JAMEELA JAMIL ARE #QUARANTINEANDCHILL GOALS

Now that Cuffing Season is over, we're all looking for someone to #QuarantineAndChill with. But something tells me none of us are going to get quite as lucky as James Blake. I mean – could Jameela BE any more stunning? UGH!!!

 

PROTECT WEIRD AL YANKOVIC AT ALL COSTS

In Al we trust! Jokes aside – WE MUST PROTECT WEIRD AL FROM COVID-19 AT ALL COSTS! The man is a national treasure and I really think we ought to lock him in a safe house along with Betty White, Dolly Parton, and Tom Hanks...OH WAIT!

 

TAYLOR SWIFT WANTS US TO #BEMOREMEREDITH

And finally...a word of encouragement from Taylor Swift. IF MEREDITH CAN GET THROUGH THIS, WE ALL CAN! #BeMoreMeredith

Until next time, why not follow We Are: The Guard on Twitter for much more? Stay safe... x
