Usually trending hashtags aren’t the sort of thing I put on DaddyTips. But with the hashtag KidsTodayIn4Words trending on Twitter, I had to pick out a few favorites.
This is just funny.

“Kids don’t go outside enough” is a common complaint, but this tweet is actually clever.

This one is all about the photo.

Hard not to laugh at this tweet:
#kidstodayin4words Turn down for what?
— Hector David Jr. (@HecDavidJr) April 26, 2016
This one actually makes a good point.
The hashtag #KidsTodayIn4Words is trending! time to degrade kids/teens for being born in a different era with technology!

(Note: the image above is old; it’s Shaq teasing Oprah about tweeting using all caps. I still find it amusing.)
Here’s a tip from the Library of Congress about book preservation. I think it will also make for better book presentation on the shelf.

I honestly don’t know what this next tweet is about, but it appears to be about books, so let’s go with that. Books are good. Reading is fundamental, after all. Read more »
A debate on Twitter — maybe not a DEBATE exactly, more of a series of tweets, some of which are amusing — regarding the raising of kids and whether or not it is a good idea to indoctrinate them into becoming fans of your favorite sports team, even if that team isn’t exactly known for winning it all. (Apologies if anyone is offended by the language of the Tweeter’s username. I’m not offended, but maybe someone else is. If so, sorry.)
My view? Don’t force the issue. If you’re a real fan of a team, your kid will probably pick up on that fandom as they grow up. Sometimes strange things happen; it’s easy to forget that our children are humans with minds of their own.
In my case it’s easy — I’m a Yankees fan and a Giants fan. Neither team breaks your heart the way the Mets and the Jets do. But if I lived somewhere other than New York, I would be more inclined to encourage my kids to consider our local franchises, even if I maintained my own life-long loyalties.
Here’s the tweet that spawned this post:

This reply amused me:
@ZODIAC_MF I'm raising my kid an Eagles fan and it feels abusive, somehow.
— Kyle (@Kyle19152) January 23, 2015
The thing is, if you live in Philly, and you’re an Eagles fan, there’s nothing wrong with passing that fandom onto your children. Maybe you shouldn’t encourage them to boo Santa Claus, though.
And for anyone out there who thinks being a Yankee fan is easy, one word — A-Rod. Is that even a word? I don’t know.

Now, by “Wonder Woman” I mean whoever runs the Twitter account @LassoingGoddess. Still, I’m happy. Happier than Pharrell Williams? Maybe relatively, but the video for his song “Happy” has over 445 million views, and he’s currently enjoying a career better than anyone in show business. So my guess is that he’s happier than me. At least I hope he is, because he’s got a lot to be happy about. By the way, did you know he wrote a song about being happy?
Ultimately it’s all about perspective. I’m not writing a hit song anytime soon, nor am I being asked to be a judge on a TV singing contest.
But hey, Wonder Woman favorited my tweet. I’ll take it.

Pregnancy sounds awesome if for no other reason than to sneak up on unsuspecting gents in a bar & grinding on them "Surprise! Full of baby!"

Note: As far as we know she was just making a joke, not an announcement. Just so we’re clear.
Also, for what it’s worth, Ms. Decker’s tweets are often amusing, and she seems like a nice person. For example, here’s an article about her involvement with the 2014 Special Olympics.

Tweets. Tweets. Twitter! It’s all about The Twitter. Except when it’s all about The Facebook. Or The Google. Those are The Big Three, I think. Oh! The YouTube. So much for (un)holy trinities.

Anyway, here are some tweets we stumbled across that we decided to share with you.
How this works, parents using Bing to get a free tablet for their child’s classroom, I have no idea. But Microsoft has done stranger things so we figured it was worth sharing.

Nathan Rabin is a funny guy. Also a very good writer. Pick up his books, any of them. They’re good.
Most of the traffic for my THE FOUR SEASONS Forgotbuster comes from Google searches for "middle-aged, sexually exciting stir-fry."

Apparently I follow Jimmy Fallon on Twitter. (I badly need to look at my Twitter account. By the way, are you following me @brettsinger? You should. I’m very interesting.) Anyway, here Mr. Fallon tweets a rather kindly worded review of Seth Rogen’s latest film, Neighbors. The tone matches Fallon’s general image, which is that he seems like a nice guy.
Congrats @Sethrogen. I just watched Neighbors – hilarious and also sweet – best movie I've seen in a while. Well done all around.
