If you’re like me, you get a bit of a pit in your stomach when you see a message come through from someone you don’t regularly interact with on Twitter (or any platform, really.
They’re almost never great, but most are easily ignored with a simple eyeroll and hitting the block button.
Some, though, like these 15 are so excellently bad that they have to be shared.
15. Don’t flatter her so much!
This is hilarious and awful all at once.

7. Crap, am I supposed to be able to do those things?

6. Do yourself a favor and don’t Google the translation.
I’m not sure if he’s referring to himself or the person he sent the message to but it isn’t nice.

Thanks for the parting compliment, I guess.
