I didn't even know Conan HAD a podcast. Also by "driving" I think you mean "showing up fifteen years late, carrying Starbucks".— Brooke Elizabeth (@kellybluebrooke) August 20, 2019
did boomers finally figure out what 'pod cast' means— epstein’s golden dome (@goblinpunk9) August 20, 2019
You guys know there are podcasts that don't have or need celebrities,right...?— Aaron-Harkonnen Melange FC (@AaronSlosek) August 20, 2019
Now just wait until you guys listen to Serial, that'll really blow your minds.— Andrew Grzywacz (@AndrewGrzywacz) August 20, 2019
.@Variety, I turned my “niche show” into a “viable business” (and then a tv show & a book series) all the way back in 2015.— Aaron Mahnke (@amahnke) August 20, 2019
The revolution isn’t new, and it’s actually powered by a ton of people who didn’t start out rich & famous before they clicked “record”.
Talk about THEM. https://t.co/b6bxs8guGf
If by "driving" you mean "following" then yes. Otherwise this headline is incredibly stupid.— J Roane (@JDRoane) August 20, 2019

Delete this. It's an insult to the hardworking podcast community.
Podcasts have been giving a platform and a voice to any and all interests, broad or niche, for 15 years. For nearly a decade it has been an income source for the top creators. An already famous white guy starts one and suddenly it’s a “revolution” . Hot take, @variety. 🤦🏻♀️ pic.twitter.com/qIG0TO86k5— SciFilia (@Scifilia) August 20, 2019
Podcasts are like a 15 year old industry that have been monetized for like 10 years and extremely main stream for like 5 but yeah, revolutionize that niche sis.— Joe Coombs (@Attack_oftheJoe) August 20, 2019
I like Conan’s show but it kinda sucks to see people who were already famous come into a medium and get declared revolutionary— nick!!! (@nicklohr) August 20, 2019
The level of out of touch is FAR TOO MUCH!— Ξvan Ross Katz (@evanrosskatz) August 20, 2019
The revolution was 10 years ago you dolts, started by talented independent content creators who more or less defined the medium.— Paul R (@lbcyber) August 20, 2019
Celebrities are just now finding out about it and following the bandwagon with generic pop trash.
Podcasts were started years ago by people with minimal resources and for someone this rich and that already has a huge platform to enter and be held this high is insulting to all the people who worked so hard to create something.— Curtis May Bi (@BazoopaKazoopa) August 20, 2019
Imagine thinking podcasts weren't good until Conan— The Bell Beefer (@Brainsnap) August 20, 2019
what about all the very popular podcasts that have been around for 10-15 years already? so out of touch.— Apollyon (@katsuragifan) August 20, 2019
The new definition of driving where it means, "Following behind others doing the heavy lifting and then booting them out of the way to gain the credit."— Exasperated (@Numberopinion) August 20, 2019

I will refrain from judgment until I get my hands on that Popeyes chicken.
@scarfacerocks99, weighing in on the chicken sandwich war between Popeyes and Chick-fil-A. The conflict began last Monday, Aug. 12, when Popeyes debuted its chicken sandwich, which looks similar to Chick-fil-A’s famed sandwich. After customers began suggesting this week that Popeyes’ sandwich was better than Chick-fil-A’s, heated discussions about the sandwiches’ merits ensued. The companies themselves got into a tense Twitter exchange, with Chick-fil-A stating its sandwich was “the original.”
Aye fam, if Popeyes comes out with the waffle fries… Idk man it really might be scary hours.— Beanie Seagull (@DaBlackHoward) August 19, 2019
This the kinda beef I’m here for— Hu$band (@father) August 19, 2019
Popeyes Chicken 65% hype 35% (at best) satisfaction. Ya'll lost it if u truly think its better than Chick Fil A.— DJ Chris Cross (@DJChrisCross_) August 19, 2019
I never thought I'd see a war break out in my country during my lifetime. I was wrong. In the words of President Abraham Lincoln, "Now we are engaged in a great CHICKEN war. . ." (Btw I'm PRO-pickle. Don't @ me anti-pickle people.) #ChickenSandwichTwitter pic.twitter.com/bpqlUMz0DJ— Cassimistic (@cassimistic) August 20, 2019
In all honesty, does James Bond have time for anything?
@The_Shiznit, joking about the 25th James Bond movie, officially titled “No Time to Die.” Tuesday’s announcement satisfied fans who’d simply been calling it “Bond 25,” and inspired a number of time- and age-related jokes. The above tweeter noted that “die” also appears in the title for Bond movies “Tomorrow Never Dies” and “Die Another Day.”

This is a big sign from the universe that I need to switch up my hair game.
@GiaPeppers, tweeting about Twitter’s viral “DMX Challenge,” which gets its name and concept from rapper DMX’s 1999 song “What They Really Want.” In the song’s second verse, DMX lists the names of 46 women. Black women have been making videos of their different hairstyles synced with each woman’s name, seen as a celebration of black hair’s versatility.
I have been very, very patient. But if Mr. Harry Edward Styles doesn’t give us new music I will spontaneously combust.
@szechuan, discussing Harry Styles’ cover for the September issue of Rolling Stone. The cover has fans speculating that the singer’s second album is imminent, since he dropped his first album after gracing Rolling Stone’s cover in 2017.
saw harry styles on the cover of Rolling Stone and realised HS2 is about to rise and now I'm losing my sanity to the one direction discography x— rachel (@1994CLUELESS) August 19, 2019
I’m not okay. I’m so sick and here I am waiting up for Harry Styles. If he drops something whilst I’m asleep I’m not gonna be okay.— 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐥𝐞𝐲 (@ghostinhs) August 19, 2019
I just want to say well done to everyone for being so patient and good luck to everyone for surviving the next era of Harry Styles— Sasha (@StylesMovieNews) August 19, 2019
