The Rabbit Hole That Is Stan Twitter: Funny Tweets That Are The K-Pop Fandom In A Nutshell
Ah, stan Twitter; where would K-pop be without it? If this wonderful mess of a website we call Twitter didn’t exist, then where would we find our best memes and bear witness to petty drama?! The internet has such a powerful impact on our lives overall, and the K-pop fandom is not at all exempt from its influence.
An amalgamation of online culture, K-pop Twitter is home to many little nuggets of humor which poke fun at the fandom as a whole. In order to best encapsulate life as a K-pop stan into a single article, I have compiled 21 of these funny Tweets for your viewing pleasure. Sit back, relax, and prepare to be somewhat offended.
