Twitter can be a rough place. Trending topics, hashtag activism, outrage culture, and selfies–that’s a veritable minefield.
To keep one’s mental health above critical levels, I highly recommend following what I believe is the funniest Twitter account on the site. @KimKierkegaard posts daily mash-ups of things Kim Kardashian might say with quotes from existentialist philosopher Soren Kierkegaard. The results are hilariously concoted soundbytes of contemplative philosophy and pop culture absurdity.
Here are some of my favorite posts so far:
We love selfies! The despairing self, by taking notice of itself, tries to make itself more than it already is.

Should I use my sins to terrify the public?Or should I keep this terror hidden in my innermost being? Trying on a few looks 2 see what works

And my personal, all time favorite:
I always regret when I try long nails. They remind me too poignantly of the sharp scythe of the reaper.
