Quiz: How Well Do You Know Your Internet?

Test your knowledge of the weird world of the world wide web. All quotes are taken from various social networks - identify them and impress your friends (yeah, right) with your high score!

Some of the most fun accounts on Twitter are “TXT” accounts that take snippets of disembodied text from a certain website, forum, or social network for comic effect. @TumblrTXT, @Reddit_txt, etc…

They tease out the worst stereotypes - the lonely loser Redditor, the annoying guy explaining stuff on RapGenius, the Tumblr user arguing about priviledge and “otherkin rights”. Seeing these snippets of real text from sites pop up in your Twitter feed without any context is a pure delight.

Here’s a quiz that uses top tweets from a few of these. Can you figure out which site each sentence came from?

    3. Wikipedia
