In such trying times, at least we can still have a laugh.
Given such serious and unprecedented circumstances, it can feel somewhat wrong to make light of a situation, but even during the trying times we are currently in, we all need a laugh sometimes.
Maybe now more so than ever, humour can be a source of relief.
To make the best of a bad situation, Twitter Marketing UK recently compiled and shared a thread of some of the best tweets from social distancers and self-isolaters across the world and we thought they were just too good not to share with you.
There's sure to be many more funny tweets popping up over the coming weeks as it looks as though the topic of coronavirus (COVID-19) is not going anywhere any time soon, so here's some of the best tweets for now at least.
1. "let's circle back"
We'll all get off topic in a conversation sometimes don't we? We're not all 'circle back' people though and that's the difference here.
A funny thing about quarantining is hearing your partner in full work mode for the first time. Like, I’m married to a “let’s circle back” guy — who knew?— Laura Norkin (@inLaurasWords) March 19, 2020
2. No office relationships
To be fair, can you imagine how awkward that would be?
My husband and I are both working from home and he's just sent round a memo about a total ban on office relationships.— Laura Lexx (@lauralexx) March 19, 2020
3. The littlest co-workers
They're always up to something, aren't they? It's just a good job there's no HR.
Tell us about a young child but say “my co-worker” or “my friend’s co-worker” instead of their name. (Because, you know, this is reality now for some of us.)— Shannon Dingle (@ShannonDingle) March 18, 2020
Ex: My co-worker asked for yogurt and is now crying because I gave her yogurt.
One of my co-workers bit another co-worker on their butt because “I thought it would be funny.”— Shannon Dingle (@ShannonDingle) March 18, 2020
4. Zoom meetings
Is this the hack we've all been crying out for?
5. The lover of a list
Some people are just list people and that's that on that.
*quarantine day 6*— mary beth (@marybethbarone) March 19, 2020
roommate: should we make a list?
me: of what?
roommate: anything really...
6. It's one or the other
Or in fact, is it possible to be both? Yes, yes it is.

7. We're in this together
No one should feel fully alone during self-isolation.
i just got back from italy & was required to self quarantine in my room for 14 days so my parents ate every meal with me from the hallway. i don’t deserve them :’) pic.twitter.com/0mwLSdkIdv— mia (@miabongo) March 19, 2020
8. Coronavirus buddies
People are out here making friends and not even a global pandemic can stop them.
I’ve just adopted an 84yr old woman called Jackie from the Co-Op. She was looking bewildered and I asked if she was ok. Turns out she’s all by herself, her family all live in Holland and she lives around the corner from me.— ????? (@CollieGirI) March 19, 2020
We’ve decided to be Coronavirus Buddies....
9. Kids and dogs
Okay so this one's not particularly funny, but it's wholesome and we all need it right now.
Because everything sucks right now please enjoy 2+ minutes of little kids & good boys/girls.— Rex Chapman?? (@RexChapman) March 19, 2020
Hang in there everyone and don't forget to smile!
