There Was An Earthquake In California Last Night. Here Are The 18 Best Tweets.

Mother nature is acting up.

Last night I woke up screaming from what I thought was a terrifying nightmare. My blinds were rattling and my bed was shaking. To put it bluntly, it was some Exorcist shit.

I was extremely disoriented, turned my bathroom light on (in hopes that it would protect me from the devil), then went back to sleep. When I woke up, I had texts from a couple friends asking me if I "felt the earthquake."

Turns out I wasn't visited by the devil. It was just a casual 3.7 magnitude earthquake that conveniently decided to occur right in the midst of a pandemic! Here's what Twitter had to say about this nonsense:

Was it an earthquake or did I just take my category 8 titties out of my sports bra? only scientists can say
