Black Twitter Strikes Again! #ABCReports Trending After ‘Twerking: A Scientific Explanation’ Goes Up

August 27, 2013  |  

ABC News probably should’ve thought about this story before they posted it.

In an attempt to work every angle of the Miley Cyrus/VMA performance story, ABC News posted an article this morning: “Twerking: A Scientific Explanation.” And then Black Twitter went in. Now #ABCReports is trending. The Internet wins again.


The writer consulted with an exercise science professor from Auburn University, Michelle Olson, who offered this insight, “[T]he booty dancing move is a good “twerkout” for your butt and thighs. It also works the deep muscles of the hips and the core muscles of the lower back and abdominals.”

But beware. “[O]ver-twerking might throw out the lower back or make the knees creak, Olson cautioned.”

Trust us, the hashtag is better than the article. Check out more of it here.
