These 19 Memes Won 2021 Twitter, And I Just Want To Thank Them For Enhancing My Twitter Obsession Even Further

Twitter is truly the eighth wonder of the world.

Creating a successful Twitter meme is honestly an art.

The truly good ones get everyone to join in, from your fave Twitter comedians, to basically every brand, to your high school teacher who you still inexplicably follow on Twitter nearly a decade later (just me?).

I searched through my likes, scrolled through every single meme I've ever DMed my friends in between tears of laughter, and probably spent way too much time reminiscing in order to round up some of the meme formats from 2021 that are sure to make the Twitter Hall of Fame.

And if any of these tweets made you laugh, be sure to follow their creators on Twitter!

1. Two guys on a bus:

Twitter: @frequentpuker
Twitter: @DrPenisBoob

The hold this picture has on my Twitter feed is truly unmatched. But, tbh, some of them are so good that I'm not even mad about it.

2. The feminine urge:

the feminine urge to start sentences with “i think” when in actuality, i know for a fact

Twitter: @bubae_n

the feminine urge to spend hours cooking something and then explain all the mistakes you think you made before anyone even takes a bite

Twitter: @losertakesall

The feminine urge to retweet literally every single feminine urge tweet I see because I relate so intensely to all of them.

3. Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya:

Agreeing to go On the agreed out on Saturday: Saturday:

Twitter: @DionneGrant

we should grab a drink// grabbing the drink

Twitter: @alex_abads

Are there two people you'd rather see all over your Twitter timeline than Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya? The answer is no.

4. Yassify Bot:

Twitter: @YassifyBot
Twitter: @YassifyBot

I'm begging the Internet to never let this meme concept fade away. They're honestly all pure gold, but my favorites are the ones that Yassify (aka filter the heck out of iconic images) already existing memes.

5. Red flags:

using Snapchat as a main source of texting 🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩

Twitter: @JackiieMeliisa

“me and my ex are still friends” 🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩

Twitter: @mykelrenee

We stan an informative meme and I guarantee you that there are a few people out there who have been clued into a toxic behavior or a questionable personality trait from this trend.

6. Anakin and Padmé:

Twitter: @PHRISK3D

This one hit a little too close to home.

Twitter: @matt_riebe

This clip from Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones featuring Anakin and Padmé having a romantic picnic became a Twitter legend over the summer.

7. Bernie Sanders at Biden's inauguration:

I am once again asking you to join the Avengers Initiative

Twitter: @AshleyKSmalls

@jaketapper This is the best I have seen.

Twitter: @KatieOK_

While this meme feels like it's from approximately 3000 years ago, it is in fact from January 2021, so please excuse me while I consider the fact that time is truly meaningless.

🥚🐣🥚🐣🥚🐣🥚🐣🥚🐣🥚🐣🥚🐣🥚🐣🥚🐣🥚🐣

This egg has already hatched. Keep looking for easter eggs for a chance to be a winner of our 5 Days of Giveaways!

8. Same person, different fonts:

I can’t explain it but all three of these actresses give me a similar vibe. They’re like the same person in different fonts.

Twitter: @diegwhore

they are the same person in different fonts

Twitter: ULTRAGLOSS

Brb, going to refer to similar looking/acting people this way for the rest of my life now.

9. "You smell like weed," "I am weed.":

“You smell “I am weed.” like weed.”

Twitter: @AliseNavidad

“You smell “I am weed.” like weed.”

Twitter: @lukebiwalker

Honestly, everything about Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox's relationship feels meme-worthy to me (I mean, they literally chained themselves together by their nails), but their infamous "I am weed" exchange truly blessed our timelines.

10. Did it hurt?:

did it hurt? when you created fake scenarios in your head

Twitter: @drivingmemadi

did it hurt? when the email found you well?

Twitter: @KimmyMonte

Did it hurt? When all of these tweets described every part of my personality so perfectly that I felt personally offended? Yes.

11. Making versions of Spotify Wrapped for other companies:

Anyone else get their Zillow Wrapped yet? Wtf

Twitter: @Dobrenkz
Twitter: @KevinFarzad

Spotify Wrapped is the most wonderful time of the year, but these riffs on Wrapped from other apps and websites might take the cake. Deeply feel that rent one, tbh.

12. "Bella, where the hell you been loca?":

“bella where the hell have you been, loca?” she’s been busy. with him.

Twitter: @SabrinaKollar

hey there delilah where there hell have you been loca

Twitter: @babybunnybean

Not a format per se, but the amount of jokes that have legitimately made me laugh out loud that have stemmed from this Twilight scene means it had to end up on this list.

13. The French Dispatch cast at Cannes:

Twitter: @jessicashortall
Twitter: @doliver8

The juxtaposition between these outfits is unmatched. Tag yourself, I'm Bill Murray's not one, but two watches.

14. Kathryn Hahn winking from Wandavision:

“Omg let’s get together soon, I miss you!!” “Yesss omg I’ll let you know and we can plan something!!”

Twitter: @_wchiv

me telling my computer i’ll update everything tomorrow

Twitter: @Kristen_Arnett

I have a feeling that this photo will be one of my most used reaction pics until the end of time.

15. Shocked Oprah from the Meghan and Harry interview:

“We don’t do bottomless Mimosas” Me: Cancel the reservation

Twitter: @YoungMuli_

Me every time my job asks me to do my job

Twitter: @sipJENandJuice

There were many iconic moments from Oprah's bombshell interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but her shocked reaction is what memes are made of.

16. "It's always...and not...":

it’s always “ily” and never “tmabwiotbtmybfitmbowiseaiwhtbmw”

Twitter: @lyxopk

it’s always “wyd” and never “iwtffyjlmay”

Twitter: @canyonmoonblu

What better way to make fun of the cringy "wyd" text than by pairing it with some of pop culture's best moments?

17. "RIP to X, they would have loved X.":

RIP edgar allen poe i know he woud've loved that's so raven

Twitter: @mygfreal

RIP Marie Antoinette you would have loved Cake Boss

Twitter: @simply_lay_

RIP my self esteem, I know I will never write a tweet as funny as these.

18. Stock market BF/astrology GF:

astrology gf and stock market bf

Twitter: @bodegaoflove
Twitter: @kobcritic_

The stock market BF/astrology GF concept originated during the GameStop short stock scandal and makes fun of the fact that the stock market is just as hard for women to understand as astrology is for men. And you know what, I can't help but agree.

19. "If you've ever done this, don't worry about what's in the vaccine.":

if you’ve ever touched a little kid’s ipad then don’t worry about what’s in the vaccine

Twitter: @saxparasite

if you've worn a festival wristband months after it's ended then you don't need to worry about what's in the covid vaccine

Twitter: @emxlyyyy_xo

While this originated in December 2020, these "don't worry about the vaccine" tweets lived on long into 2021.
