Goodbye forever? Panicked Twitter OGs recap the app’s trendiest viral moments

With rumors of an imminent Twitter shutdown, netizens came together to reminisce about some of their favorite moments on the platform.

It all unfolded Thursday night as reports circulated that Twitter headquarters had lost a staggering number of employees in a short period of time following an ultimatum from its new CEO, Elon Musk.

Tweeters fear for the future of Twitter

As news of the situation at Twitter HQ spread, users quickly began to react to the prospect of the platform potentially going under. Tweets with hashtags like #RIPTwitter, #GoodbyeTwitter, and #TwitterDown spread like wildfire.

Notably, Tumblr got caught up in the mess too.

A silver lining through memes and reaction videos

Through the madness, some users opened up discussions about people sharing some of their favorite media and memories from the platform. The general idea was to share some of Twitter’s most memorable aspects to preserve the culture, as many genuinely seemed to think the site was in jeopardy.

In turn, Twitter was soon inundated with some memorable pieces of media that went viral on the site, as well as some new gems.

A number of the submissions were screenshots of memorable tweets.

There were also meme and reaction videos galore in the threads.

People also shared music-based videos.

As users tried to possibly end their Twitter run on a funny note, there was plenty of humor.

Should Users Keep Their Twitter Archive?

Thankfully, Twitter is still operational, so your favorite memes, reaction videos, and bookmarks are still safe (for now, at least).

However, with this fear of shutdown, various outlets like The New York Times and The guard have started instructing affected users on how to download or generally keep their Twitter archive just in case.
