5 of the funniest tweets about technology

From Titanic and Apple Pencil, to Google and teenagers - CBR brings you the the funniest tweets about technology.

By Ellie Burns

Technology has given us many things – the telephone, electricity, the mobile phone, television – the list goes on and on.

Technology has also gifted us the Internet and Twitter, giving people from all over the world an outlet in order to express ideas, opinions and news in 140 characters or less.

It is also a perfect outlet for the comedians among us, with those gifted with funny bones seizing on trends and popular culture with an array of memes, gags and puns.

Here at CBR we thought we would combine the best of both worlds, bringing you the funniest tweets about technology.

We’ve all been there – in Starbucks enjoying the free wifi and a flat white when mother nature calls. But what to do with your laptop? Leave it or unplug and head to the ladies or gents? Chelsea Lockwood has come up with the perfect solution, a deterrent based on a quite aggressive and scary search history. I’m sure it would be quite effective, after all, would you steal a laptop from someone who’s so “good at guns”?


The cloud – the fluffy thing in the sky?
