Kids these days; with their hats, their attitude, and their unwrinkled skin. They don't know how good they've got it. I mean, social media for crying out loud! It's media, but...social. It's media with a twist, it's social media, it's social-flippin'-media.
One of the best things about all this social media malarkey is Twitter. Maybe you've heard of it, maybe you're on it; it's been going since 2006 and it's kind of a big deal. There's even Twitter awards now, with categories like 'Most Inspirational Tweeter', 'Best Twitter Bromance', and 'Most #Selfie Obsessed Star.' I'm not even joking.
Welcome to 2015. This is the world we're living in.
In honour of this social media phenomenon, we decided to scour the Twitter-verse in a bid to find some funny tweets related, in someway, to skateboarding. These might make you chuckle, they might make you want to palm your smartphone repeatedly into your own face; whatever they make you do, be sure to tweet about it.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was a 900 kickflip mctwist but it was last summer and only his cousin saw it and you don't know him
