If you’re stranded on a desert island with a rapidly dying cell phone, probably the last thing you’re going to worry about is sending a tweet. Obviously, with gorgeous views like that, it’s better to go with Instagram.

Still, Twitter wanted to know what you would tweet if you decided to use your final 5% on its platform.

And boy did people have thoughts.

Some of them chose not to really get into the spirit of things.

Although others had more interesting ways to get rescued.

A few people decided to just treat it like a normal day on Twitter.

Others took the opportunity to get some stuff off their chest.

Naturally, there was a lot of complaining about Twitter, including a lot of calls to get Nazis off the platform.

There were also a lot of people who wanted to spend their last moment online talking about sports.

And, obviously, there was no way brand Twitter was not going to jump on board.

A few people chose to look on the bright side.

While other users felt it was best to go out messing with people.

There was also a fairly large number of people who decided that being stranded on a desert island afforded them the perfect opportunity to be racist, but we’ll spare you those tweets. Besides, a quick look through their feeds revealed that they also had no problem being racist at home with a full battery charge.

We’ll leave you instead with someone who tweeted the meme that will never die. It’s a safe bet that, no matter how long you’re stranded on that island, when you get back, the Distracted Boyfriend will be here waiting for you.
