16 Things That Are 1000% Millennial Culture

Millennials are the most educated, overworked, and underappreciated generation. We get blamed for killing baby boomer cultural touchstones, ripping apart the social fabric, and spending too much time on our phones. It’s not fair, but “not fair” is something the generation that came of age during the Great Recession is used to. Thankfully, millennials are great at celebrating—and making fun of—ourselves, and that’s just what these funny millennial tweets are all about.

 You see, far from being the entitled, self-centered, empty generation boomers make us out to be,  millennials are actually very caring and have a rich culture all of our own. It might not be much, and a lot of it is transmitted through memes, but it’s ours. Ladies and gentlemen, let these funny millennial tweets be your guide to millennial culture.
