Viral tweets just make Twitter utterly delightful; so we thought to curate our top 10 (there’s a bonus and then some) from last week. Some of the tweets will have you shedding a tear; others will make you bowl over with laughter; altogether they’ll give you an idea about what Twitter talked about during the week.
WE ARE ‘NORTH’ ENEMIES
Dear Southern twitter, I hope this reaches you well. I have come to realize that you hardly interact with us as such, most of you have negative perceptions about us. I wont force you to change your impressions but for the few of you who would like to reason as matured people…

IT’S DANA, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN
Flew Dana. Exit door was unstable throughout the flight. As we touched down it fell off. Scary stuff. pic.twitter.com/eDtTlNi2TZ

This is the death trap that Enugu State Government built in the name of a pedestrian bridge.
The bridge has no hand rails, nor safety paves. Young school kids use this bridge on a daily basis. Please RT until this gets to the authorities.

WHY WE PRAY
Have you noticed that you pray less when you travel abroad? So many of our prayer points are caused by infrastructural inefficiencies. Nigeria's demons are not evil spirits. They are corrupt men in office.

SAFETY, NOT INTEREST
Because several men have dialed the fake number I gave them in front of me and demanded for the real one.
Because it is faster to get you to leave me alone if I give it.
Because I don't want to deal with your overemotional rejection theatrics.
Because I don't want violence. https://t.co/SKKVz4gogD

My position on argumentation is often sourced from a phrase I read in a Japanese book:
'Always remember that to argue, and win, is to break down the reality of the person you are arguing against. It is painful to lose your reality, so be kind, even if you are right.'
