The Very Best Twitter Reactions to the World Population Reaching 8 Billion

‘Earth finally has 8 billion subscribers’

It’s official: the world’s population has reached 8 billion, less than a century after the planet recorded a mere two living in our precious blue orange. Although the increase was exponential and rapid, experts are now claiming that this number will soon start shrinking as the world starts facing more obstacles related to the rapid climate change, the low fertility of land, and poor living conditions amongst other species-threatening issues. 

As some were quick to celebrate human kind’s newest milestone, posting all sorts of deep and supposedly profound messages on social media, others online decided to do what they do best, which is to give birth to some seriously funny memes and one-liners online. 

If you ask us, there’s no better place to see what the masses think than the people’s own open court, our generation’s equivalent to Ancient Greek Agoras — Twitter. Since the news officially broke out, Tweets have been pouring in the thousands, and by now you should know that we’re anything but gate-keepers when it comes to these things, so here’s a couple of our favorites so far from the bird app.
