The 23 Funniest Community Notes of 2023

The end of Elon Musk’s first calendar year as chairman of Twitter is fast approaching, and there are so many things he’s done (poorly) for the website. He flushed brand recognition and SEO results down the toilet by changing the name of the platform to “X” and flipped the (no-longer-Twitter) bird to dictionaries everywhere by letting “tweets” fall by the wayside in favor of the bland and generic “posts.” The two crucial identity changes have been largely ignored by anyone with a brain because saying that “you’re posting on X” is a statement that should put you on a government watchlist. 

Speaking of which, Musk rolled out a watchlist of his own with a subscription service that turned a once tried-and-true verification badge into a Scarlet Letter. He removed Circles, a widely-beloved feature that allowed users to share thoughts with a more intimate group of people within their own following, due to “nobody using the feature,” which is a fast way to let everyone know that you’re a loser who wasn’t in anyone else’s Circle. Musk also put the kibosh on headlines appearing in links because they were “ugly,” but you know what else is ugly? Misinformation. Most recently, outgoing links have been disabled, and surely it’s just some “bug” and has nothing to do with articles being disseminated about a two-million-vehicle Tesla recall

While Musk’s many changes to Twitter have been awful and created a hostile environment, there’s one special little place that’s maintained some sort of integrity: the hallowed halls of the Community Notes. The user-submitted fact-checker has been the site’s last line of defense and also a place where unwitting parties have been roasted into oblivion. 

From washed-up athletes to misguided politicians, here are some of the funniest ways people had their asses handed to them thanks to Twitter’s most brutal feature
