Twitter used to be an incredible place where we could all be ourselves without being judged and have a great time. This was a long time ago. Things have taken a turn for the worst in the last few years. People are abusive, politics is all that’s acceptable and humour and wit are soon becoming a thing of the past. In these troubling times, a few handles act like a breath of fresh air and remind us of the old times. A time when we played with words and not other people’s feelings.
While there are plenty of underrated handles out there, one which deserves a special mention is @mildlyclassic. From lame jokes to witty one liners, his account has a lot of great stuff to offer. You might think that you don’t know him but you’ve definitely read a few of his tweets in those whatsapp forwards you get daily.
Here we have curated a few of his best tweets:
