Cher’s Best Tweets of 2016

Cher’s always had her own way of doing things and Twitter is no exception. Where other people express a single thought in a grammatical manner most of us are familiar with, Cher tweets read like fragmented riddles. Sometimes they’re in all caps, sometimes the first letter of every word is capitalized, sometimes comas take the place of spaces, sometimes arbitrary words are capitalized, sometimes emojis are paired for a little word play, and a lot of the time it’s a combination of at least three of those. One thing’s for sure, though, and it’s that Cher’s fired up at all times.

Overwhelmingly, Cher’s tweets this year were in some way related to the election, which was fine because that just meant I got to read her call Donald Trump “Mr. (toilet emoji)” over and over, but of course she had more to dissect than just politics. Here are her best tweets this year.

  1. Ari

    thanks Erin. I was really feeling down about the lack of Cher coverage in end of the year podcast roundups so thanks pal. needed it

  2. How did we go from 8 to 10? Where’s 9? Are you holding out on us, Erin?

  3. some days the only thing that gets me thru is the knowledge that cher and dolly parton will never die.

    (no like really at this point i think it might be physically impossible for them)

    bless u for this gift, erin.

  4. Thank you Erin (and Cher) for never failing to make me laugh, even in this garbage shitstorm of a year.

  5. Thank you Erin, for keeping us up to date on Cher’s twitter, which is always full of gems. Remember when she called bullshit on the emoji police? No one can hold her back.

  6. This is amazing! She truly is a gift.

    Cher is my second favourite celebrity tweeter (is that a thing?) after Carrie Fisher. Her twitter is a masterpiece.

    • There is something about older, female celebrities not giving a fuck that makes me heart swell with happiness. Like I’ve seen how much shit theyve copped over their lives and they don’t deserve it and they are gifts and good for them.
