Since we’ve played games that allowed us to vent about our neighbors, I was hoping to get some positive tweets with #IWishMyNeighbors. I think the tweets ended up being about 50% positive, neutral, or aspiring. The other 50% was complaints, but that’s okay too! I tweeted a few grudges myself! The tag trended in the US for a while, reaching #5 at one point.
I could never do a “best tweets” list, because taste is so subjective. Plus, I would spend days agonizing over the choices! So here are some tweets that stood out to me for various reasons. And of course, the obligatory contribution from the host.
#IWishMyNeighbors were unicorn breeders.

#IWishMyNeighbors would knock three times on the ceiling- but not four. I'm not in to what four knocks means.

#IWishMyNeighbors knew how thankful I am that they say they "don't mind" my barking dog, when I'm sure they do
