A Father's Day appreciation of always-embarrassing #DadTwitter

father's day
Wild dads can't be broken.

It’s been a while since “Shit My Dad Says” was the hottest feed on Twitter, but did you know that plenty of fathers still use the service, day in and day out, to relate their (mis)adventures in parenting? Welcome to #DadTwitter, where embarrassment is an art, a crushing sense of responsibility pervades all, and the kids can’t hear you curse, thank god. 

Naturally, we wanted to ask Twitter’s Top Dads™ what they loved most about being a part of this online community. Their exhausted, sarcastic answers are #DadTwitter at its finest.

We here at the Daily Dot would like to wish these dynamic dads a wonderful Father’s Day, with all the macaroni-studded cards and backyard grilling that entails. When your children are done paying you lip service, we’ll be here waiting for more of that cuddly cynicism and disarming sincerity you do so well. Plus the dad jokes. Please never stop with those.

Turns out, dads and their kids have lots of common Facebook interests
Your dad might never understand how to write a non-embarrassing Facebook post or figure out how to tag photos, but it turns out fathers and their children have a few Facebook interests in common. In honor of Father’s Day, Facebook looked at the overlapping interests between fathers and their sons and daughters.
