Not quite as bad as their twitter timeline commenting on the whole Leland falling on the coffin scene as 'lol that was so WEIRd and AWKWArd lol xDDD.'

Seeing classic Twin Peaks passed through the sieve of modern, fractured net aesthetic sure is something.

Secondhand embarrassment is putting it mildly, I cannot go through my Twitter feed when the episodes are on... I've seen some quality Twin Peaks memeing and gif usage and that is not it.
Admittedly, in my limited experience, the bar is very low when it comes to this kind of content from official accounts, but still...

Yeah, the gif live tweeting they do makes me cringe a bit.
This is - excuse me - a damn fine cup of coffee.

They should have given control of their social media to someone over the age of 35. This millenial-ization of the show's Twitter feed is awful. I had to unsubscribe. I figure any breaking news that comes from them will be disseminated elsewhere anyway.

lol I'm not convinced they aren't over 35 tbh, in part because their social media game is so poor

Seconded. It's not what they are doing, it's that they're doing it awfully.

Exactly. It's the 'How do you do, fellow kids?' Buscemi meme writ large.
Recipe not my own. In a coffee cup. 3 TBS flour, 2 TBS sugar, 1.5 TBS cocoa powder, .25 TSP baking powder, pinch of salt. 3 TBS milk, 1.5 TBS vegetable oil, 1 TBS peanut butter. Add and mix each set. Microwave 1 minute 10 seconds. The cup will be hot.
