Roy Wood Jr. is a comedian and a correspondent for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. He's also known for his particularly excellent Twitter threads.
Yesterday he was back to his comedy genius when he made an astute observation about the Notes app on iPhone. Check it out.

But he didn't stop there. He proceeded to share excellent news via a Notes screenshot to illustrate how the app ruins the mood.
Even good news reads sad in ‘Notes’ https://t.co/o1YA4pOfHp— Roy Wood Jr- Ex Jedi (@Roy Wood Jr- Ex Jedi)1537891913.0
But he was sure to leave his readers with another productive task for which the app could be used.
Notes is also good for posting tour dates https://t.co/BGn3O32f2L— Roy Wood Jr- Ex Jedi (@Roy Wood Jr- Ex Jedi)1537894239.0
The app is actually meant
"to capture a quick thought or save something important or interesting for later."
But many celebrities and organizations have used the app to defy Twitter's 280 characters.
Over the past year or so, Notes has been famously utilized by celebs such as Lena Dunham.

As expected, Twitter found Roy Wood Jr.'s observation to be hilariously accurate.

Somehow Wood's reaction actually read the way it was intended. Perhaps that is the power of "fangirling".

Other readers proceeded to share just how they use the app with such a pessimistic connotation.
