We’re halfway into the year 2016 and we’ve already experienced countless great moments on Black Twitter.  From poignant, inventive hashtags to those that are Black Lives Matter and activism-based. Hashtags that are comical in nature, meant to give folks respite from the daily stresses we face in our personal lives. Hashtags that dismantle cultural appropriation and point out straight up inappropriateness.  The latest in entertainment to breaking news and everything in between, even memes that make you burst out into laughter or simply shake your head. We’ve laughed and learned a lot in 2016.  There’s been no shortage of viral goodness thanks to Black Twitter and its respective hashtag creators.

And you’ll find these shareable, headline-making moments on your Twitter timeline, of course, but also in print and online magazines, as well as on the news.  Simply put, Black Twitter is everywhere.  Its influence is wide and very important.  Kind of makes you wonder what the rest of 2016 will bring.  Here are 20 of the top Twitter moments so far this year.
