24 of the Funniest Times People Got Roasted in Twitter’s Community Notes

Twitter introduced “Community Notes” to combat misinformation by allowing users to “collaboratively add context to potentially misleading posts.” While the fact-checking feature has been readily adopted and widely used for its intended purpose, it’s also become something of a playground for jabsroasts and brutal takedowns. Obviously, these types of Community Notes are often at odds with the website’s pursuit of an unbiased fact-check when they’re filled with punchy language or insults to the original tweeter, but when you consider some of the hypocrites who try to roam the app unchecked, the one-two punch is often validated. 

Here are some of the funniest roasts at the hands of the Community Notes. Just remember that with great power, comes great responsibility…
