@arianamarie, reacting to the news that model Kimora Lee Simmons’ iconic early 2000s brand is returning as a Forever 21 collaboration. Many fans were elated by the announcement — and possible resurgence of the brand’s velour tracksuits and bedazzled cat logo — but some wondered what Forever 21’s fast-fashion influence would mean for Baby Phat’s quality.

The bigger question here is: How has he only like eight tweets?

@ericdemamp, joking about the president liking a tweet from writer Heben Nigatu that praised the singer for speaking on the importance of a work-life balance. Twitter users have taken the like as a sign that Trump, who has liked just eight tweets, is a Rihanna fan.

“I just didn’t want to be the kid with cancer, so now I’m the kid who plays violin.”

@Stevenator9001, tweeting about 11-year-old violinist Tyler Butler-Figueroa’s Tuesday audition on “America’s Got Talent.” After explaining he was bullied for having cancer, Tyler performed a rousing cover of Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You).” Judge Simon Cowell hit the golden buzzer, sending Tyler to the live shows.
