How I got trolled by Snooki

As you may or may not know, I write for a travel company. My day consists of researching destinations and flushing out why someone would want to visit. A few weeks ago I thought I would post a sassy tweet to show my ambivalence towards Jersey. Seriously, researching what to do there led me to pages like, “well, it’s really close to New York!” So the tweet was born:

To my surprise Snooki tweeted me back, which was hilarious and awesome because my tweets never get read:

Suddenly my phone started blowing up with over 100 Twitter notifications in about 20 minutes with trolls posting shit like:

And my personal favorite was this sweetheart:

So I guess all in all I learned that if you’re going to make jokes on the internet, don’t direct them to people on the East Coast. Also learned that there are a looooooot of people on the internet who are insane and have a lot of time on their hands. I wonder if people who are actually internet famous read all the weird replies they get on their social media posts, doubtful. Haters gon’ hate. Trolls gon’ troll. At the end of the day all you can do is sit back, laugh, and hope to go viral.
