The "Straightforward Surprised"
All business. There is no positive or negative connotation, just a "WOW" followed with the facts. Simple and classic.
The "Enthusiastic Supporter With Empowering Hashtag"
For when you feel like celebrating and just feeling the love.
The "Backwards Compliment"
Sometimes you want to give a compliment but you don't want it to be too obvious. Maybe you want to disguise it a little. This one is for you.
The "Opposed To Furthering My Own Equality"
Perhaps you're just an old fashioned girl who appreciates a society full of unwavering gender stereotypes.
The "Perfectly Composed Congratulator"
It is congratulatory, features a shout out not just by name but by Twitter handle, links to a related news article and uses perfect grammar and syntax. It's the classic novel of tweets.
The "Beyonce Quote"
Because there is never a time on the internet when a Beyonce reference is not appropriate. There is always reason for more Bey, and sometimes the Queen gives you just what you need to express yourself.
The "Who Will Be Next?"
For the forward-thinkers and dreamers who are always looking for the possibilities that may lay ahead. Dream on you crazy dreamers. You are the future.
It's not intentionally negative but it's also not really trying to make it into as big of a thing as everyone else is. Some people can't just enjoy a good thing, and that's okay.
The "Chill Enthusiast"
It's positive and concise with a little bit of slang to give it a relaxed, conversational vibe.
The "Question Everyone Is Thinking"
Enthusiasts want to think about it but perhaps are feeling cautious, and haters don't want to even go there. But these are the curious and brave few who are ready to ask the question for you.
The " Ripple Effect Inspiration"
For when you are feeling the good vibes and start thinking about getting in on the action.
The "I Never Thought I'd See The Day"
There are positive and negative versions of this type of reaction. But if you are surprised that something has happened in your lifetime, this is a go-to.
The "Guardedly Optimistic"
Not everyone can just get out there and go full Beyonce #GIRLS. Sometimes you might just want to dip your toe in and see how it feels.
The "Hatefully Tying Together Unrelated Issues"
This is a tricky one because it expresses hatred and bigotry regarding the actual issue while also expressing hatred and bigotry against a completely unrelated group of people and/or issues.
The "Floodgate Negativism"
This is a classic. You view the issue at hand negatively and with criticism and believe that it is a catalyst for further crap happening that you know you won't like.
The "New Fan"
It's perfect for when a good thing makes you a fan of the person/people involved. It's a very rare occurrence on the internet but it's beautiful when it does happen.
The "Straight Up Pessimist"
The straight up pessimist tweet is not nevessarily for haters. It is for those who just have no time for excitement. The difference is subtle, but there is a difference.
Perfect for the few stragglers who haven't fully figured out the internet and still don't understand that the likelihood of your question getting answered on Twitter before you take the 10 seconds to Google it yourself is very, very slim.
