Black Friday: Buyers, Haters Unite on Twitter to Troll Craziest Shopping Day of the Year

1 hour ago

Black Friday brings out the crazy in everyone — whether you are participating or not. The day after Thanksgiving is known for instigating insanity in overzealous consumers and people have already taken to Twitter to analyze the situation that started in the wee hours on Friday. (Actually, some of it started weeks ago, but that’s due to even crazier marketing tactics.) Most shoppers are as in on the joke as the people who are picking on them, so lots of tweets and memes included videos of people either stampeding into stores — or highlighted a lack of lines.
