From negroni sbagliato (with prosecco in it, obviously), Spitgate, Happy Garden Coffee Lady to ‘can real people queerbait’, 2022 has been the year of Twitter discourse. Apart from famously being a dumpster on fire, Twitter is also the place where nuance is invented needlessly and also scrapped off when needed. People lost sleep over a variety of things this year, including a range of actions and non-actions by celebrities.
The ‘Happy Garden Coffee Lady’ was someone who tweeted about enjoying a cup of coffee with her husband every morning and somehow ended up starting a fierce debate on privilege. Then there was someone who tweeted about bringing food to their new neighbours and got absolutely destroyed on Twitter because that was somehow deemed offensive.
Among celebrities, Emma D’Arcy’s drink of choice, the negroni sbagliato with prosecco in it, became a raging meme and a queer signature. Olivia Wilde’s movie ‘Don’t Worry Darling’, mired in controversy, somehow ended up giving birth to ‘Spitgate’ where people spent weeks convinced that Harry Styles had spat on co-star Chris Pine inside a hall full of people.
