@UnderwhelmingH, reacting to the “Game of Thrones” actor’s Emmy nomination for his role as Theon Greyjoy. Fans were thrilled — even more so when Twitter user @JillianSed noted that the recognition was akin to a rebuke of his sister Lily Allen for her 2006 song “Alfie.” The track expresses her worries about the path of her brother’s life, with lyrics including, “My little brother’s in his bedroom smoking weed” and “I just can’t sit back and watch you waste your life away.”

On the one hand, we absolutely didn’t need a pre-trailer featurette on “Cats.” On the other hand, it’s an incredible ride.

@anniezard, joking about the first look at the musical’s film adaptation ahead of its Friday trailer release. Fans mocked the dramatic music and passionate testimonials from stars, including Taylor Swift and Idris Elba, above.

@ojfaces, tweeting about the newest couple emoji, to be released later this year. Apple and Google on Wednesday announced over 75 combinations of interracial people for straight and LGBTQ couples.

I hate this.

@MeatheadMilitia, reacting to gamer YTSunny’s version of Super Mario Bros.’ 1-1 level in Super Mario Maker 2. Mario Maker allows players to design their own courses. YTSunny took 1-1, the easiest Mario level, and added fire bars everywhere. A dizzying number of jumps and double-backs are needed to pass the level.

On a question that has one wrong answer, Kris Kobach amazingly gave that wrong answer.

@RenaissanceRip, blasting Republican Kris Kobach’s Tuesday appearance on Chris Cuomo’s CNN show. On the topic of President Trump’s recent racist tweets, Kobach said he would cease defending the president if he admitted to being a racist. When host Cuomo then asked if he would still support Trump as president, Kobach replied, “Um, I don’t know.”
