Here are five things you may have missed on Twitter this week.
Apologies that there wasn’t a Friday Five last week. I was eating my way around New York.
1. When the reality star with a big derriere and a child named after compass points released yet another photo of her naked body parts with the hashtag #breaktheinternet, Twitter responded with it’s own trending topic: #fixtheinternet.
Hahaha! Their 15 minutes are up! #fixtheinternet #overit #famousfornothing #nosurgery,myass #goaway #truth #myeyes!!! pic.twitter.com/WfamrjMsf2— UrbanHippieChick (@BpositiveBhappy) November 14, 2014
I don’t think we need to #FixTheInternet. What we really need is to #FixOurPriorities. Whatever the platform, why is nudity global news? — Tommie Tomson (@TalkDTings) November 14, 2014
Just saved the Internet. You’re welcome. #FixTheInternet pic.twitter.com/NcdjYh8LE5

Can we all get over Kim K and realize that for the first time in human history we landed on a damn comet yesterday? #fixtheinternet — Haroon Munir (@haroon_munir) November 14, 2014

2. The Nation’s favorite weatherman, Al Roker, bested the Guinness World Record for longest weather report by staying up for 34 hours straight. Here’s Twitter with your commentary. #rokerthon

3. This week, for the first time in history, a human landed on a comet. Twitter used to occasion to point out the less than stellar progress of humanity with the hashtag #WeCanLandOnACometButWeCant:
#wecanlandonacometbutwecant tell the difference between “your” and “you’re”
— Sam (@therealsamhf) November 14, 2014
#wecanlandonacometbutwecant create a happy ending for Lady Edith. ^^ #Downton pic.twitter.com/NeHgU6YUUQ — Lady Mary’s Eyebrows (@L_MarysEyebrows) November 14, 2014

4. People in some parts of the world reported seeing white flurries falling from the sky. I believe they call this snow. Twitter saw lots of snow chatter this week.
It’s snowing so the chances of me showing up to any social events in the future have just fallen below zero.

“omg whys it’s snowing?!” we live in Indiana this happens every year why are you surprised — elexus (@elexuuss_) November 14, 2014
There are the people that tell us it’s snowing, and then there are the people that tell those people to stop

5. Because there is a holiday for everything, today is National Pickle Day. Twitter loves a good pickle. #NationalPickleDay.
Um, every day is #NationalPickleDay. They’re the best. — Laura Bedrossian (@LauraBedrossian) November 14, 2014
#NationalPickleDay Twitter is the only
place I can find out about these #national holidays that I never knew existed before. #Hmmmmmmm

Could someone deliver some fried pickles to my office? I’d like to observe #NationalPickleDay. — Nicole Lee (@lee_nicole) November 14, 2014

Can’t wait to see what you’ve selected for the #AaliyahMovie on next week’s Friday Five 😉
I found myself trying to RT some of these. ::facepalm::
