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.
