    24 People Who Should Be Banned From Twitter For Life

    That thing where people explain your joke back to you has inspired new Twitter account @YesThatsTheJoke. ~log off lads~

    1. @YesThatsTheJoke is a Twitter account cataloguing every time a comedian wanted to fling their phone into a bush.

    2. The comedian behind it told BuzzFeed: "There is nothing that upsets comedians more than seeing someone take a joke tweet at face value. Nothing. Not climate change, not social injustice. NOTHING."

    Now you mention it, maybe it was. (@chris_coltrane)

    3. "All these things pale in comparison to the true evil of replying back to a tweet explaining the joke to the person who told it."

    I'm still not convinced. (follow them: @joewellscomic)

    4. "Has something terrible ever happened to you? Try having a throwaway joke get temporarily misunderstood by one person on the internet. THEN you'll know true suffering."

    That's a good point, I hadn't thought of that. (follow them: @robdelaney)

    5. "If you correctly identified what I just said as a joke, then I think you’ll enjoy our new account.”

    Oh cool, now I get it! (follow them: @hahildebrand)
