Not sure what it’s been like for you but over the last few weeks, as Elon Musk loses control over Twitter, many people in my life have been debating whether or not to delete their accounts. And it’s the same in Hollywood as some celebrities have already done it or are considering it and digital strategists are now being consulted to advise people on how to proceed.
Pete Davidson was trending on Twitter yesterday after more and more people heard about the rumour that he’s hooking up with Emily Ratajkowski. It was probably not their intention but in doing whatever they’re doing together, Pete and Emrata inadvertently gave Twitter a boost. Because there was a lot of reaction to their story that reflected Twitter at its best and funniest.
Here’s a tweet that went mega-viral:

And this one is very good too:
If you're in line to date Pete Davidson STAY IN LINE. It's your constitutional right.— Rohita Kadambi (@RohitaKadambi) November 15, 2022
But the best one has to be this – from a person who has been unexpectedly great on Twitter, Ms Dionne Warwick:
I will be dating Pete Davidson next.— Dionne Warwick (@dionnewarwick) November 14, 2022
And if you’ve been following, you know, this is not a one-off. Because every few weeks or so for the last few years, Ms Warwick has come on Twitter to drop some comedy gold. Remember, back in September?
I just heard about Leonardo DiCaprioâ€™s 25 year rule. His loss. You donâ€™t know what youâ€™re missing.— Dionne Warwick (@dionnewarwick) September 13, 2022
But before that she also weighed in on Spitgate, the short film starring Harry Styles and Chris Pine:
That young man did not spit on anyone. I cannot believe that this was part of my Pop Culture call this morning, but Iâ€™m trying to keep up with yâ€™all. ðŸ¤¡— Dionne Warwick (@dionnewarwick) September 6, 2022
So what does Dionne think of the current mess at Twitter? Here’s what she tweeted last week after Elon Musk reportedly fired thousands of Twitter employees:
Thank you to the wonderful people at Twitter who welcomed me with open arms. You are so valuable to this space and I am thankful for your time. ðŸ¥°— Dionne Warwick (@dionnewarwick) November 7, 2022
The entertainment and social media teams at Twitter were some of the smartest, most clever people Iâ€™ve ever had the pleasure of working with.— Dionne Warwick (@dionnewarwick) November 7, 2022
And just a couple of days before that, she appeared to be considering alternatives:
Maybe Iâ€™ll become the best at TikTok or Instagram now. https://t.co/BxAoTBE5XA— Dionne Warwick (@dionnewarwick) November 4, 2022
Um, Dionne Warwick would be AMAZING on TikTok, are you kidding me?!
