The internet is vast and filled with nazis and bad news. Twitter — the home of Alex Jones, Eric Garland threads, and people who quote tweet Trump news with the caption “This changes everything” — is somehow even worse, save one particular user (sorry Cute Animal Twitter, you’re still in time out).

Relationships.txt, also known as @redditships, is an account that tweets out screenshots of the most absurd (and occasionally delightful) posts in r/relationships. Sometimes the unknown person behind the account might comment on the post at hand, or announce they’re taking a vacation, but otherwise, it’s just some weird Reddit stories formatted for your viewing pleasure.
