Twitter is full of strange terms that describe groups of people who use the service. Remember bare minimum Twitter and chapstick and mascara Twitter? Now there’s a subgroup called Fiat 500 Twitter. Similar to bare minimum and chapstick and mascara, Fiat 500 Twitter appears to identify (right now, mainly entitled British) women who always tweet about certain topics, such as tanning and eating Chinese takeout. And the tweets, which are extraordinarily mundane, garner thousands of likes and retweets.
Over the last week, as the term took off, many people tweeted descriptions of Fiat 500 Twitter.
Fiat 500 Twitter is my new way of describing people who think a personality is prosecco, Pandora and love island— megz (@megzily) December 31, 2017
fiat 500 twitter doesnt get as near as much credit as it deserves. u know how long it must take them trying to reword the same tweet about how they are in desperate need of a chinese takeaway and a cuddle. theyre working their absolute socks off and all u can do is take the piss.— lucy (@lucymarshll) January 4, 2018

In case you were wondering, women who are a part of Fiat 500 Twitter do drive the tiny cars. (They also apparently like Michael Kors handbags.)

Looool definitely the boyfriends of Fiat 500 twitter https://t.co/ljQULG9lCc— baby (@majabxby) December 28, 2017
Marking a woman as a member of Fiat 500 Twitter is essentially saying she’s basic, materialistic, and prone to drama. People who drive a Fiat 500 are now worried about being associated with the Twitter moniker.
If you’re still with us, there’s another term that people are calling the male equivalent of Fiat 500 Twitter: Dark Fruits Twitter. These men drink Strongbow Dark Fruit Cider and idolize Liam Gallagher of Oasis. They are, it seems, the fuckbois of the UK.

Combined, Dark Fruits and Fiat 500 Twitter form a “coalition.” The people in this group, according to Twitter, criticize anyone with a slightly alternative look or style. They also use the words goth and feminist as insults.
fiat 500 and strongbow dark fruits twitter’s fave insults =— micky (@lunchtongue) January 3, 2018
fiat 500 twitter, who have definitely never seen a goth in their lives, really love calling everyone a goth for looking a bit alternative. pls stick to getting cheated on by your bf at a caravan park and go away— panayiota (@jigovlife) January 2, 2018
Fiat 500 culture is thinking that a goth is someone who has a septum piercing, an unconventional hair colour, and takes bathroom selfies with one foot on the sink— Luc (@ellkay_) January 3, 2018
This week, Twitter was full of Fiat 500 and Dark Fruits jokes.

ah yes, the two genders: fiat 500 and strongbow dark fruits https://t.co/fEDAlO6IQw— flo (@flocorf) January 2, 2018
Of course, if you’re outside the U.K., you’re probably confused by all references to the subgroups.
lmao imagine how confused people from any country but the UK are by the fiat 500 twitter and strongbow dark fruits twitter jokes— raging feminist bitch (@jess12509) January 5, 2018
So what’s the American version of Fiat 500 and Dark Fruits Twitter? Is it bare minimum Twitter, or something else? We’ll let the internet decide that one.
