Jim Acosta wasn’t grandstanding, and he didn’t inappropriately place his hands on a WH aide. What he did do was his job.

@Susan_Hennessey, tweeting about the White House revoking Jim Acosta’s press pass after the CNN reporter and President Trump got into a heated exchange during Wednesday’s press briefing. Trump labeled Acosta — with whom he has often clashed — a “rude, terrible person” after the journalist questioned Trump’s characterization of the migrant caravan as an “invasion.”

My dumb celebrity moment: I said “Jenna!” to Tonight Alive’s Jenna McDougall ... as if she didn’t know who she was.

@rachyymarshall, describing the dumbest thing she’s ever said to a celebrity, after she asked the question of others. Responses included @kenziecoffman saying, “Hug me brotha” to actor Josh Peck, a throwback to his signature line on “Drake & Josh.” Peck allegedly just laughed and didn’t hug the fan.

@WanderingAbove, blasting the South Carolina senator after he said Wednesday that he would work with President Trump to find a replacement for former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Graham was immediately called out for his comments, since he said back in July 2017 that there would be “holy hell to pay” if the president fired Sessions.

If Ice Town becomes a reality, I wouldn’t mind going to Oregon.

@dam_dylan, joking after Yoncalla, Ore., elected 18-year-old Ben Simons as its mayor. The election outcome reminded many of “Parks and Recreation” character Ben Wyatt, who was elected mayor of his hometown at 18 but was impeached after trying to build a winter sports complex called Ice Town.

I mean, I’d be honored to even say I was in an online queue for tickets to a Michelle Obama book talk.

@SharonKits, reacting to the technical issues fans encountered when trying to buy tickets to see former first lady Michelle Obama at her December book talk in London. The online queue for tickets at the Southbank Centre was absurdly long, with multiple Twitter users reporting that their numerical spot in line topped 30,000.
