If you’re reading this article from Twitter, you’re likely reading it from the comfort of your own home.
And with a recent spate of tweets being pulled off the platform for violating Twitter’s Terms of Service, we decided to take a closer look at the tweets that are getting pulled off of the platform.
If you don’t have an account, here’s how to read these tweets on your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone.1.
The first tweet, which we think you’re probably familiar with, was from @buddhism_, a tweet which has been retweeted more than 30,000 times.
We love the way Buddhism uses a literal translation of the title of the tweet: “Sanskrit is my mother tongue.”2.
The second tweet, we believe you probably recognize as a parody of the Buddhist scripture: The Mahabharata.
The caption says: “What does the Buddha have to say about this?”3.
The third tweet, a parody titled “This is my last tweet” which was retweeted over 10,000 people.
The title says: ‘This is the end of my life.
If I can’t save you, you can’t help me.
If only I could talk to you.
You can help me.’4.
The fourth tweet, another parody of Buddhist scripture called the Mahabhayasya: “I have lived all my life to make you understand me.”
The five tweets are the last tweets the platform has pulled off.
This tweet was pulled off by @laura_khan, who is a member of the staff at the Twitter account @josh_nelson, who retweeted the tweet and wrote: “This should have been a simple one, a simple joke, and I guess I was too naive to think it was going to go viral.”5.
We are pretty sure that the fifth tweet, titled “I’m gonna kill you.”
This tweet has been posted over 6,000,000 Times since it was posted on April 8.
The next tweet, #BuddhistsPray for your family members.
It’s a parody.
The tweet is posted at 2:07:53am on April 12, the same time as the first tweet.
It was removed at 3:16am.
We asked @laurakhan if she thought it was funny, and she said she didn’t think so, because the tweet was “a little too personal,” but said that the “buddhist meaning” of the phrase “I’ll kill you” could “probably be interpreted a little differently” than the literal meaning of “I will kill you”.
The last tweet, however, was pulled by @johnday, who posted it at 3.49am on May 2.
It is the tweet that got removed from Twitter on May 6.
