@SVallorani, tweeting after the season finale of “The Bachelorette.” Rachel Lindsay chose Bryan, the suitor who was willing to propose to her, over Peter, because he wasn’t ready to get engaged. She was compared to her ex-boyfriend, basketball star Kevin Durant, who left the Oklahoma City Thunder so he could win a championship ring with the Golden State Warriors.
if rachel wanted a ring so bad she should've just joined the warriors like KD

@abxlsangel, after the Cincinnati Zoo tweeted a picture of its hippo Fiona, who has a large social media following. The zoo reported that her neck rolls are getting bigger and she weighs 421 pounds. The zoo also announced that its director is writing a children’s book about Fiona.
Honestly, I would trade opposable thumbs in order to be Fiona the Hippo and get congratulated on how much my neck rolls have grown.

What does an NYC candle smell like?
— Lisa Suhay (@NiceChess757) August 7, 2017
@NiceChess757, imagining what a New York City-scented candle might smell like. Fragrance company Diptyque Paris tweeted about its NYC candle, which “captures the scent of the city that never sleeps,” and people weighed in on what that means to them. “How about a suite of NYC candle scents? ‘Rush Hour in the Summer,’ ‘A Walk Down Canal,’ ‘My Uber last night,’ ” @adrienn_e tweeted. Twitter user @plumandmustard said it frankly: “New York stinks. Keep your candle.”
