Excuse me, why are Jedward sending personalised messages to people on Twitter?
This is peak 2020
For some reason, John and Edward aka Jedward are sending DMs to people on Twitter and everyone is very confused by it all.
Initially the lucky few were big media figures who quickly went viral with their screenshots, but soon every Tom, Dick and Harry got a message. I got one! And my name is actually Tom. Wow!
From the looks of it, the boys searched their own name in Twitter and dropped a personalised message to people who tweeted about them, especially if you asked nicely for a message. Think of it like Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, except instead of people getting a golden invitation for some weird adult to murder you with chocolate or whatever, they’re getting compliments from the sixth-place finishers of The X Factor 2009, which is way better.
Anyway, these are all the people sharing their messages from Jedward, as well as some salty people who haven’t. Truly this was a sentence that could only have been typed in the clusterfuck that is 2020.
Smiles and good vibes always appreciated

They called Owen Jones ‘JEPIC’ and I’m not sure if that’s a compliment or not

You’re just jealous you don’t have one hun x
Apparently Jedward are just randomly complimenting people in their DMs and it says a lot about 2020 that this isn't even in the top 100 of Weird Things On Twitter

I did for the record ask Jedward via DM why they were doing this. If they get back to me I’ll let you know.
