basically this times a million

Twitter is a gigantic number of people who have synthesised the ‘everyone famous for 15 minutes’ concept into agonising desperation, alleviating their own feelings of mundanity by trying to appear important, usually with sub-Brooker pith.

Burn Twitter.

you know that the welsh language doesn’t have any swear words? it’s impossible for the welsh to have serious arguments about anything. if only we stopped having slurs like ‘centrist dad’ then maybe the anglosphere could come together as one too.

no, i enjoy it, and i enjoy the bbc doing a think piece about it.

Nah

Centrist Dad was over when mainstream news outlets started doing explainer pieces and needlessly defensive columns from archetypal Centrist Dads started popping up everywhere.

Quite funny how definitely, absolutely, 100% proud of the term all of these columnists tell us they are though. Repeatedly.

Nope. Not looking to be marckee’d either! (i don’t follow anyone - 99% of reading twitter comes from links off here. Tidal wave of the same shite every time)

Bit embarrassing all round tho innit?
