    These 17 Celeb Tweets Prove That Manifestation Is Real, So BRB, I'm Heading To Twitter

    "Applied for xfactor, hope it all wrks out." —Niall Horan

    Recently, Twitter launched a new campaign by sharing historic tweets by celebs, athletes, and more inspirational figures who manifested their futures years ago with 140–280 characters or less.

    Speaking your dreams into existence is just the first step in the long journey of making them come true. Nobody from Marvel ever read this tweet, but that didn't matter. I believed in it enough that I was willing to work every day for it. Speak your dreams and then get to work!
