FILED UNDER: #followateen vs. #followanadult
It all started with the #followateen trend on Twitter, where adults in the media industry pick a random teenager to follow and tweet about what the teen has been talking about: “My teen hates school because you have to wear pants there. I love my teen. #followateen.”
But Rookie Magazine founder and leader of thoughtful teens Tavi Gavinson tweeted a call to arms to ask youths everywhere to start a #followanadult revolution: “Growns who think teens tweets are dumb (#followateen) should see their fellow adults’. Today we dare to #followanadult. Join us won’t you?”
The back-and-forth battle has been raging on, and some “growns” have been mocked for even participating in the #followanadult trend. Though the hashtags are used bitingly, we couldn’t help but notice they’re pretty entertaining. Our favorite may be, “My adult had to get a tax extension this year, but he/she made it to Coachella the first weekend #FollowAnAdult”

It really doesn’t get more niche than this. New blog KnobFeel reviews the sensation of turning the knobs on audio equipment, though it has expanded to other items like butter and McVities Hobnobs. Each review has a video (complete with strange pleasured noises) accompanied by even weirder text description. The whole thing reminds us a little of the segment on ASMR YouTube videos in This American Life’s recently aired Tribes episode.
