The rise of Twitter’s white boys

Reddit has conspiracy theories, Instagram has food blogs, and Facebook has moms.

But Twitter isn’t as clear who it’s targeted audience is for. Twitter rises as a haven for young, sleep-deprived, white guys who appear to catapult Twitter higher than other social media outlets.

Every month, an anonymous group of people crown a young white male, the title “Twitter’s White Boy of the Month,” which is the only honor Twitter can give. Once a name is declared, a male champion will fill your Twitter feed for exactly 30 days until a new, but somewhat familiar face fills his place.

Various grammy winners, ex-Disney stars, and Oscar nominees have all been given the famous title. Noah Centineo and Timothee Chalamet in one room together could exclusively talk and bond about winning the title, but nothing else.

Beyond the average curly-haired boys chosen, there is a hidden, superior category which few are a part of. As a matter of fact, these boys were not picked by anyone, but are so charming, they rose out of the ashes of commonality. These “woke kings” called by Twitter-fanatics, include Dylan O’Brien, Ansel Elgort, and Nick Robinson because of their public support of POC and LGTBQ+ communities.

Perhaps in the future a “white girl of the month” will surface, but for now these pasty boys will have to do. This seemingly endless cycle ultimately brings no harm (except to the egos of those not selected), but brings together people from all walks of life.
