Paris Hilton’s simple question sends Twitter into a thought spiral
The reactions to her tweet are kind of amazing.
When Paris Hilton comes to mind, most typically think of her fragrance line, her family’s humongous hotel chain, and her heydays of reality TV, fashion, and Nicole Richie. Few link the star to being a purveyor of deep, philosophical discussions.
The heiress sent Twitter into a frenzy on Sunday tweeting “What’s on your mind?” accompanied by a very pensive black-and-white photo of her looking away from camera into the background.

Although the celebrity didn’t share what she was thinking about that night, her question spawned more than 2,900 comments.
They ranged from some philosophical gems…

All credit to @ParisHilton for starting this one. I didn't even know much about football (or physics) until her tweet started me thinking.
— Man In The Suitcase (@HermitMark) September 11, 2017
Paris’ reality days may be behind her since she moved on to DJing around the world, releasing a new perfume every few months, and starting a YouTube channel, but the mogul proved she can start a trend from almost anything.
