If you're in your 30s or 40s there's a high probability you have some fond and super-cringey memories of MySpace. It was the cool kid of social media for several years, wearing the crown long before Facebook. Part of what made MySpace fun was the fact that your home page really could be your space. There were seemingly endless ways to customize what people saw and heard when they went to your page. In a way, you could tell people who you were and what you were all about before they read a single word from a single post.
Yeah. There's a chance you have no real idea what MySpace was all about or why people were so sucked in by it. But that's okay. Twitter is here to teach you all about the ins and outs of MySpace that you may not get.
who knew me trying to have the flyest layout to impress my crush would result in hard skills for my LinkedIn— sullivan ballou (@sullivan_ballou) December 12, 2017
Maybe a website to where you can find a background drop and make it your own. Something that says "I like graffiti font.."— Hue Blackman (@ScrillGates) December 12, 2017
I remember my MySpace having some horrible song playing in the background and a quiz that I totally didn't cheat on telling people I was like The Punisher.— Eric- Space Captain Zemo (@SpaceCptZemo) December 12, 2017
I remember the drama that ensued if you replaced someone on your top friends list lmao— Alyx (@MrsDembie) December 12, 2017
These kids don’t know about the drama caused by who was and who wasn’t included in your Top 8— The Dude (@el_duderino8184) December 12, 2017
