#BlackBuzzFeed is Twitter’s Newest Awesome Trending Topic

I’m an avid reader of BuzzFeed, because their lists are addictive and their GIFs are amazing. Twitter wants to see what would happen if BuzzFeed created a section for topics that Black folks loves to talk about, thus starting the #BlackBuzzFeed hashtag that is now the #1 trending topic in the United States, and #2 worldwide. I’ve compiled some of the tweets in a Storify, so here they are below. And they are funny dinnamug!

BuzzFeed can thank all of Twitter for this idea because they should make it happen. And call me when they do.

#BlackBuzzFeed

I’ll be updating these with more tweets throughout the day so check back! And In case you missed Twitter’s roast of #PaulasBestDishes, check that out too.

Oh Twitter… good times.

P.S. If you want to see any of these articles happen, you can create them yourself. If not on your own site, then create a community post on BuzzFeed. If it’s good enough, it can end up on the homepage.
