I Can’t Figure out Snapchat: Some More Internet Haikus

a sleeper twitter
someone i did not expect
is chrissy teigen


when facebook came out
i was in my freshman year
college not high school


go on pandora
with rihanna’s ‘work’ in mind
not today old friend


a sad confession
i can’t figure out snapchat
i feel death’s hot breath


real life to online
too short just doesn’t translate
i’m sorry too short


my close online friend
@’d virginia woolf’s ghost
and met her girlfriend


tweet’s ‘oops (oh my)’ song
was a prophetic story
describing twitter


truly feel blessed that
i’m hard to find on facebook
shout out to my name


kevin gates’ six jobs
are internet byproducts
gig economy


something that’s crazy
is i got a car bumper
sent from amazon


i need a hair app
that tells me how to cut it
‘what’s app with my hair’


joanne the scammer
is like a next level cher
very iconic


liked an ex’s pic
it’s not that bad except whoops
that’s her boyfriend’s page


i saw a g-chat
but from seven years ago
and i’m now a ghost


who called them comments
when they’re really e-pinions
lol 2 tru


facebook’s custom tab
has saved many families
specifically mine


hey entrepreneurs
if you create that hair app
can i have a… cut


my favorite screenshots
are with mariah carey
saying “who’s j.lo?”


the A+ podcast
is required listening
their voices like hugs


mallory ortberg

  1. I can help you. Some other people my own age showed me how to use snapchat this weekend. All you have to do to use the filters is press on the screen over your face when you are in selfie mode (front facing camera mode). Then you swipe the different filters to the left. The very last filter is face swap.

    I felt dumb when other adults showed me how to use it however yesterday I spent several minutes sending pictures of myself vomiting rainbows. If you figure it out, you can send me snaps! My username is alcopela :)

  2. I FIGURED OUT SNAPCHAT I THINK, the point is to put the filters on your pets.
    my snapchat name is the same as my instagram and i want to watch more people get weird, just throwin that out there.

  3. I lost my shit at “What’s app with my hair” so now everyone at work thinks I’m crazy.

    Also, I still don’t really “get” snapchat (although thanks to Amanda’s comment I now know at least how to use it!) and I feel like I should, so it’s good to know I’m not alone.
