Why is it that April Fools’ Day is the one day a year where we view what we read on the internet with skepticism?

Internet jokes: Were you an April Fool?
Easter Sunday this year fell on the same day as April Fool’s Day, a.k.a. the worst day to read news on the internet. Were you fooled by any of the pranks this year? We were pretty amused at Snapchat’s dig at Facebook, and Lego’s vacuum sorter. One joke that didn’t turn out well was Elon Musk’s tweet about going bankrupt, resulting in a 7% loss in shares
When you step on a piece of Lego that could have been avoided using the Lego VacuSort.

Facebook Fallout: Exec says Facebook data may cost a life
Could Facebook be doing any worse right now? Buzzfeed News reports that in a 2016 memo sent out to employees, Facebook VP Andrew Bosworth defends data collection from private corporations. He claims that the work the company does to connect people justifies all the means of their growth. One particular section states, “So we connect more people. That can be bad if they make it negative. Maybe it costs a life by exposing someone to bullies.” Yikes. Not all of the employees are fans of Bosworth’s words, and to be honest, neither are we.
Let's think twice about hitting send on that internal memo.

Twitter thread: Man learns women love to talk about poo
You know we love a good Twitter thread. This weekend, it was Twitter user @CraigShapes that caught the internet’s attention. Craig, who lives with his girlfriend and her best friend, tweeted about all the eye-opening things he’s learned about women over the last year. Some of those things being that women are expert Instagram stalkers, and that they love talking about their bodies. Just not in a way you’d expect.

Easter Sunday: The Resurrection of Jesus Christ Superstar
We hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! Maybe you spent it at home with your loved ones and watched Jesus Christ Superstar live on NBC with the other 9.4 million viewers. On top of some stellar reviews, Twitter users were also pleased with the show, and particularly the costume design. Will John Legend be a model for a future Yeezy collection? Only time and Twitter hashtags will tell.
Those are some looks. 👀
