Son’s Tweet about His Dad’s Empty Donut Shop Helps Sales Skyrocket After Going Viral

Ah, Twitter. It’s been the source of all sorts of craziness in the last few years, but this might be one of the best Twitter stories yet.

When Billy By’s dad opened Billy’s Donuts in Missouri City, Texas, sales were slow to say the least. Nobody was coming in. So Billy did what any normal person does in 2019 to try to boost business: he took to social media to plead his case.


You know people couldn’t resist Billy’s dad standing behind the counter waiting for customers to come buy up his delicious donuts.

And guess what? The tweet picked up steam, went viral, and people started going to the store!


It worked!

Even TWITTER jumped on the story and told people to get on down to the shop.


How’s that for advertising? As of this writing, the original tweet has been retweeted 343,000 times!

Billy’s dad looked pretty darn happy about this turn of events.

Billy tweeted an update about the amazing turnaround.

I needed that wholesome story! And now I need some donuts!

Sexist Guy Posts His “12 Rules for Beautiful Women,” Gets Destroyed by the Internet

What is it with sexist jerks trying to tell other people how to live? It’s absolutely ridiculous. The only solace I have is that the internet tends to put them back in their place pretty quick.

Take Alexander J.A. Cortes, for example. The self-proclaimed “trainer”, “writer”, and speaker recently took to Twitter and laid out his 12 rules for “How to be a Beautiful Woman.”

Cortes has a history of tweeting out misogynistic views so this was really nothing new, but it caused a lot of people to respond nonetheless.

Here’s the tweet heard ’round the world that set off such a firestorm.

Cortes continued…

“Only a man can tell a woman how act.” Wow. And then he ended on this note.

As you can probably imagine, women were pretty livid.

Cortes obviously is a Grade A-level troll and he replied to his haters with another Tweetstorm.

Women’s Screenshots Reveal How Different Their Boyfriends Act on Social Media vs. Real Life

Are you always honest and upfront on social media? Or do you project a certain aura and stay “on brand” with your posts? It’s no secret that most of us tend to cultivate an image online that isn’t always 100% reflective of our personalities.

Olivia O’Leary, a social media user and student, decided to show just how much her boyfriend may not be exposing his true self on social media. While he acts one way online, his sweet and cuddly persona appears behind closed apps.

She then proved her point by posting a text from him and a recent post of them hiking. “Broski”? Really?

Here’s How to Unlock Facebook Messenger’s New ‘Dark Mode’

If you’re like me, you’re on Facebook Messenger all day long. Not only do I use it to talk to all my friends and family, but a lot of my work conversations are also actually on Messenger too! Staring at those message windows all day can be pretty taxing on the eyes, which is why I was pretty stoked to take advantage of its newest feature.

Facebook recently rolled out a secret “dark mode” for Messenger that features white text on a black background for two reasons: to lessen eye strain for users late at night and to save battery.

You want in on this action, don’t you? Well, it’s a pretty simple process to unlock the hidden feature.

He’s what you need to do: in Facebook Messenger, send someone the “crescent moon” emoji, like this: 🌙 .

Then you’ll see a whole bunch of moons falling from the top of the screen and you’ll be prompted to enable the dark mode option for Facebook Messenger. You’ll now see the new option in the app’s settings.

As you can see, the feature is now working for both iOS and Android.

And there you have it! I love it when a plan comes together!

Try it out for yourself, it really is easy on the eyes!

15 Tweets That’ll Make You Feel Really, REALLY Old

I can’t deny it any longer: I’m getting OLD. My bones have started to make random noises when I move (especially in the morning), and I find myself constantly thinking, “That was so much better when I was a kid,” every time I check out the movies, shows, and music that my nieces and nephews are into.

These tweets aren’t helping matters much – I have a feeling they’re gonna affect you the same way they affected me: they’ll make you feel ANCIENT.

PETA Tried Dissing the Late Steve Irwin and the Internet Was NOT Having It

Steve Irwin, the Australian conservationist known as “The Crocodile Hunter,” was the Dr. Dolittle of the millennial generation. We grew up watching his show, we were deeply influenced by his passion for wildlife, and we all wept when he died tragically in 2006.

On what would have been Irwin’s 57th birthday on February 22, Google honored him with a Google doodle on its homepage.

Most people on Twitter were moved by the tribute.

People, predictably, got pretty fired up and decided to try to put PETA in its place.
