You might feel alone, but there are so many ways to connect now online and enjoy some company for a while. The most beloved of these platforms is Zoom, an easy group cam and chat app. Zoom is amazing on so many levels, but possibly the most powerful thing about it is the way it’s opened up so many possibilities for awkwardness.
Zoom is allowing people to embarrass themselves in ways they couldn’t even imagine just a month ago! It lets co-workers and classmates look directly into your filthy room and see you in the pajamas you’ve been wearing for five days straight. It’s awkward when you’re logging and when you’re desperately trying to log out and clicking on all the wrong icons.
If there’s one thing that Zoom proves it’s that humans will find a way to make social interaction uncomfortable even when social interaction isn’t even allowed. What a gift. And here are some the best and most relatable jokes about enjoying that gift on Twitter right now:

please check on your white friends who are political science majors, it’s so much harder to play devil’s advocate nowadays when the professor can just mute you on zoom :/

I hate when everyone turns their camera off during Zoom lectures it’s so awkward. My prof just asked a question and it felt like this. pic.twitter.com/LY41qyl1v5

New awkward moment for our times: the few seconds of resting bitch face between saying goodbye to everyone in a zoom meeting and figuring out how to leave it.

i was not prepared for the level of awkward that arises when a professor asks the class a question over zoom lecture and no one responds
