The de facto conglomerate known as “black Twitter” has demonstrated time and time again that it is funny, relentless and bombastic on issues relating to race and culture and can unleash the fury of God (or the wit of Richard Pryor) on those who find themselves lurking around those kinds of topics without a darn good reason. 

No one knows what started the #WhiteGirlsDoItBetter hashtag, but it’s safe to say that African-American Twitter users finished it. 


Once again, black Twitter proved it’s a force to be reckoned with.
