Anyone who has ever used Twitter will know that it’s one of the most infuriating social media apps out there because you literally can’t say anything without someone going off at you with their take on the issue and Ricky Gervais has come up with the perfect way of describing these people.

Gervais shared a video of him performing standup about people getting offended on Twitter and unsurprisingly it went viral because it was so apt. Take a look at the video below or read the summary beneath that too:

People take everything personally.
They think the world revolves around them right?
I’m not tweeting anywhere. I’m just tweeting, okay? I don’t know who’s following me. I’ve got 12 million followers [he has over 14 million now]. I don’t know who’s following. They can be following me without me knowing, right? Choose to read my tweet and then take that personally.
That’s like going into a town square, seeing a big notice board, and there’s a notice guitar lessons and you go, ‘But I don’t f—-ing want guitar lessons! What’s this? Ah, there’s a number here. All right… Are you giving guitar lessons? Yeah, I don’t f—ing want any!’
Fine. It’s not for you then. Just walk away, don’t worry about it.
Absolutely nailed it didn’t he? And people on Twitter seemed to like it too as it’s now been viewed over 11 million times on the social media platform. The irony clearly wasn’t lost on anyone.
