I remember when it seemed like just yesterday that Twitter users had to contain their witticisms to 140 characters or less. Oh wait, it actually was almost yesterday: in November 2017, Twitter doubled its character count to 280 characters.
While many bemoaned the possibility of boring, longer diatribes, longer tweets have proven to be a boon for parents. Instead of trying to confine the daily insanity that is parenting small humans to a mere 140 characters, we can now practically compose daily memoirs with 280 characters! This of course means that your favorite funny moms of Twitter have become even funnier thanks to those extra 140 characters they didn’t have before.
If you’re looking for some serious motherhood hilarity to get you through those days when you’re freezing gum out of your kid’s hair (again) or fishing the tablet out of the toilet (again), look no further than these 15 moms who are absolutely killing it on Twitter in 2018.
