While the rest of us were sleeping, eating, sleeping again, and watching Harry Potter, something happened on Twitter over the holidays that has made quite the impression:

The term "Fiat 500 Twitter" had been flying around for a week or two before this, but this innocuous tweet did what none before it had managed – it Banged™. Since then it's become something of a phenomenon across British Twitter, but...what does it actually mean?

Thankfully Twitter did what it does, and explained it better than we ever could...

To be a part of fiat 500 twitter you must: - Stand in front of a door in your avi - Tweet about your boyfriend and…

Over the last year, for reasons unknown, there has been a growing trend of tweets – often posted by young British women – going insanely viral (like, numbers you and your bad jokes could only DREAM of). These tweets are utterly harmless, don't say anything controversial – in fact they often barely say anything at all – and yet they'll receive tens of thousands of retweets and likes in a matter of hours.

For a long time this subculture of Twitter hasn't had a name. It does now.

"Fiat 500 Twitter" ffs amazing, I've never seen a demographic encapsulated quite so perfectly by a moniker as this


The name, as you've probably worked out, comes from the broad generalisation that the people who write these tweets all drive the same car. It's hit a little too close to home for some...

Similarly to Fiat 500 Twitter, this name suggests that these people have a particular fondness for Strongbow Dark Fruits. We are unable to confirm nor deny this.

Anyone who spends their fair share of time on Twitter will instantly recognise their signature move:

twitter user: i’m - dark fruits twitter:


fiat 500 twitter is my fav sub-culture of 2018

While some have been quick to identify others in need of a similar moniker.

now that fiat 500 twitter has a name please can we call the annoying JK Rowling fans Nimbus 2000 twitter

So, there you have it. And there's only one tweet we could end on. "On fair Twitter, where we lay our scene..."
