"Snarkedy Snark Snark..."

So many of us social media junkies have a love/hate relationship with Twitter. Some days it’s mostly love, some days it’s mostly hate.

There is usually no in-between.

One of the most annoying things about the social media platform are the error-filled tweets that get hundreds and thousands of retweets as if that makes the errors posted “factual.” And we’ve seen some real duds in the past.

But one thing it’s unquestionably good for is the abundant use of snark, which Merriam-Webster defines as:

informal
: an attitude or expression of mocking irreverence and sarcasm

  • no human endeavor is beyond snark these days, so lots of people enjoy hijacking a corporation’s marketing hashtag to mock the company … —Paul McFedries

First Known Use: 1999 —

Conservatives in the Twittersphere don’t get nearly enough credit for their tireless work in this regard. With that in mind, here are some recent snark gems for your perusal.
