The end of 2018 is rapidly approaching, which is good, just because it seems like it has been 2018 for like a decade. I’m not even fully convinced that it will end, but I guess we’ll have to wait until the end of December to see.
A ton of stuff has happened this year, with a news cycle that moved faster than a cheap revolving door at Trump Tower. We remained obsessed with celebrities. And millennials continued their killing spree, taking out everything from (supposedly) mayo to the entire diamond industry. Here are 20 tweets that pretty much sum up 2018.

4. People entertained the idea of giving up on reality altogether. Why not?

5. The news cycle was out of control.
Yesterday, after an 18 month investigation, the NYT revealed the President of the United States committed hundreds of millions of dollars of tax fraud – possibly one of the biggest scandals in the history of the Presidency – and 24 hours later we’re no longer talking about it.

6. I mean, news moved really, really quickly, and there seemed to be a lot of it.

7. Miley Cyrus was somehow sorta country again?

10. It was a weird year for celebrities, but then again, aren’t they all?
Kanye is lunching with Trump. Taylor Swift is posting about systemic racism on Instagram. Lana Del Rey basically told Azealia Banks “knuck if you buck.”
I no longer wish to be included in this narrative.
