Just when we thought 2016 was the worst year since records began, 2017 came around, asked us to hold its beer and proved us all wrong.

So because we all need it now more than ever – and because we all need reminding there is actually some levity on the social media site – here are some of the funniest tweets from 2017.

Yes, we’re including 280 character tweet. Literally, don’t @ us.

Here we go then. The definitive list of the 101 funniest tweets of the year; from the big hitters like Trump and Brexit to just some general silliness that will surely stand the test of time and live on immortal, the nuances of which will be debated by scholars for years to come.

Definitely not that nugget tweet though – because if we're all honest with ourselves, it got really old really fast.

You’re welcome.
