Our Weirdest Out-Of-Context Tweets From THON 2017

So much is happening so fast at THON — Twitter provides the perfect platform to get it all out there in real time. Looking back on it the next day, though, a lot of these tweets composed by folks who had been awake for 40+ hours are a little weird. “You had to be there” is an understatement.

Here are the weirdest out-of-context tweets from @THONwardstate all weekend:

We became everyone’s favorite 5:50 a.m. “U up?” text.

The possibilities are endless with this one.

Ok, blog.



Are you trying to hint something at me, @THONwardstate? I think my hair looks fine the way it is.

It’s easy to guess the context of this one, but it’s funnier to pretend we randomly tweeted it.
