Thanks for doing your thing, ultimate Twitter. It’s been a blast watching so many of you try so hard to make this list. Even if you didn’t make it, I’m sure your tweet was great — maybe it just wasn’t the best fit here. To everyone who followed along, thanks for being part of our special community.
