Twitter spent most of the week making an awfully relatable new Spongebob meme and clowning a police instruction video.
But nothing had the cyber streets talking as much as Nicki Minaj's surprise tweet announcing her rap retirement and plan to start a family. The tweet ignited scores of her ardent fans to express their disappointment and obviously, inspired those with jokes.
These are your tweets of the week:
In a now-deleted tweet, the rap legend said she was quitting hip-hop and settling down to start a family. She later walked back her retirement, but the message was already out in the world.

I’m still right here. Still madly in love with you guys & you know that. In hindsight, this should’ve been a Queen Radio discussion & it will be. I promise u guys will be happy. No guests, just us talking about everything. The tweet was abrupt & insensitive, I apologize babe ♥️???? https://t.co/eS0oHipwtg

Spongebob has become the inspiration for some of Twitter's greatest memes this past week because who can't relate to wanting to dip out? Twitter found a way to keep innovating, using a funny Spongebob scene with the caption, "Imma head out." They even used it to cope with the pain of Nicki's retirement.

Twitter spent a lot of the week roasting a woman for sharing a video with tips from a man who instructed people to tell police that they "don't answer questions" when pulled over.
