It’s been a long time. We shouldn’t have left you without some dope tweets to step to, Blavity Fam, and we're sorry. But now, just in time for the holiday season, we're back. And our gift to you is a collection of Black Twitter’s finest tweets of the week.
They’re entirely free, and we'd love it if you regift them.
We start things off this week with Carmelo Anthony giving a new meaning to the word "fly:"

We found ourselves with only one question after coming across the following tweet: Is nothing sacred?!

As cuffing season ends, we hope (for your sake) you have your life jackets ready.

This guy is asking all the right questions.
I just realized that in all of the purge movies, nobody ever steals anything valuable. All crime is legal for 24 hours straight and all you people are interested in is killing one another? Bitch the Apple store right across the street.— Peter (@OkigboXL) December 11, 2018
Here's a PSA to all Black parents: WE. DON'T. KNOW. Just watch the dang video!

Jacquees took to Instagram this week to declare himself the king of R&B, and everybody and their mama had something to say about it. Many musicians took to Twitter to crown Chris Brown the current king of the genre, but this user decided to settle the matter once and for all:
So y’all just gonna act like this ain’t the real king of R&B? pic.twitter.com/advQIjoQUS— Paco Diego Alejandro Ramirez III (@DeeDashEmOh) December 11, 2018

Finally, dear fam, we leave you with this gem. When the person no one invited shows up to the function anyway...
