    23 Funny Tweets About Boomers That Are Ridiculously Brutal, But True

    "Boomer financial advice: Stop buying avocado toast."

    It's no secret that millennials and Gen Z'ers are very, VERY outspoken when it comes to sharing their baby boomer jokes and critiques on Twitter.

    So, here's just some of their most brutal, honest, and hilarious tweets about boomers from this year so far:

    1. There's the unhelpful money advice:

    I’ve started buying a $5 iced coffee every morning instead of putting that money in a savings account. Boomers furious.

    2. Asking intrusive questions like these:

    I never wanna hear a baby boomer say shit about my tattoos, “why did you ruin your body with those” idk Nancy why did you ruin America???

    3. Underpaying interns — and then making them do all the work:

    4. Acting like this in public:

    Boomer habits that are mildly annoying elsewhere—wearing your mask on your chin, loudly narrating all the ways a computer system that everyone including you has used for a solid decade is unpleasant and onerous—become absolutely enraging in a hospital

    Twitter: @samthielman

    5. Trying to figure out technology:

    Boomer purgatory is the iOS emoji keyboard. Right now there are thousands of them trapped there, unable to send a picture they’ve taken of a computer screen to a person they met at a farmer’s market. We must end this scourge

    8. There's the unsolicited life advice:

    i'll be damned if i take advice from a baby boomer talking about "here's what I learned in my 20s"... bro shut-up, in your 20s gas was $15 dollars and you could buy a house after working part time for 6 months,

    10. Oh, and if you'd just stop spending money on coffee and Netflix, everything will be fine:

    According to Baby Boomer economic analysis. If you just cancel Netflix. Stop buying coffee.☕ Also, save money by not paying for things like rent, food, clothing, utilities, fuel, car repairs, and other basic needs... If you follow this model you can purchase a home.💀
