Over the weekend, you may find yourself enjoying brunch, taking in the latest sporting events or finally getting out and enjoying nature after a long week in the office or classroom. But that also means you aren’t as dialed into the digital world as much as you may be Monday through Friday. That’s why we are here to help.
With “Best Tweets on the Internet,” we look back at some of the biggest events of the weekend and pick out the top responses and must-see reactions to what you may have missed.
Without further ado, here are the best tweets from Mother’s Day 2018.
One of the first major events of the weekend, UFC 224 at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil provided fans with a wild night of finishes. The main event was a one-sided beating, but there was plenty of conversation following the pay-per-view because of a decision made by Raquel Pennington’s corner to allow the fight to continue despite Pennington saying “I’m done.” She was stopped two minutes later as blood poured from her face.
Corner: “No, no, no, no.”

Of course, people had plenty to say.
It should also be noted that this was a historic event.
Eastern Conference Finals: Cavs vs. Celtics Game 1
LeBron stunned everyone with his ability to recall every detail of a late-game run from the Celtics in their blowout win over the Cavaliers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Of course, there were also plenty of jokes.
On Sunday night’s, Westworld always gets Twitter popping and instantly shoots to the top of the United States trends. Because of that, we often get gems like these.
Worst of the Web
Nicole Arbour is the worst of the internet this weekend. The “comedian,” who often finds themselves embroiled in controversy for fat-shaming and nearly driving YouTubers to suicide, decided to colonize Childish Gambino’s popular “This Is America” video.
She made a joke of the themes and completely tried to take away from the deep, important message that Gambino aimed for with this horrific parody.
People were not impressed.
