“Kids Today Will Never Know” (30 Tweets)

Part of getting older is watching all the stuff that defined your childhood become incredibly irrelevant. That process seems to have speeded up quite a bit over the last few generations as technology makes mincemeat out of every earlier form of media. A CD player? Tapes? Floppy disks? What are these pathetic attempts as file sharing? Give me a smartphone and a finger to tap with and I will destroy you!

But that’s just the start of it. Maybe it’s because the decade was coming to a close, but folks on Twitter seemed to be in a very reflective mood. People started posting about “today’s kids” and what they were missing out on or could never understand.

Honestly, after scrolling through the list below, none of it seems like stuff anyone would want to understand, but that’s neither here nor there. Nostalgia can’t be controlled. We feel it even for the stupidest things, like rolling your tall socks down. Today’s kids could never.
