July 8 was a tough day for America and people with highly accute anxiety. 

With technical errors plaguing everything from the New York Stock Exchange to all flights from United Airlines, it seemed like our technology infused lifestyle was soon to be demolished in a flash of dystopian prophecy. 

Hell, some outlets stuck their tongue firmly in their cheek and straight up told us to panic. 

Stephen Colbert decided to take them up on this offer. He doesn't take over the Late Show from David Letterman until September, so he has plenty of time to freak out over everything. 

Plus, he probably ran out of cable access channels willing to give him copious amounts of screen time.

June 11 was a rough day for social media network Twitter as CEO Richard Costolo resigned from his position after the company lost a pretty penny in 2014.



Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey has stepped up to be the interim CEO and it looked like his beard might detract from the negative publicity.



And then things got even more interesting, and probably embarrassing for Dorsey, when his mom tweeted her dislike for his hirsuite appearance.



Imagine the personal hell of inventing a social media only to have your mom join and publicly guilt your facial hair on it.

This is the world in which you live.



Hard choices.

2016 Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (ever heard of her?) has launched and authenticated an Instagram account.

She tastefully entered this foray with a little joke commenting her pants-suit-wearing predilection, while also using the colors of this great nation (America).

So that's nice.

Last time around, social media meant big wins for Obama's reelection, so expect just a sheer onslaught of political attention from candidates to your feeds.

The best we can hope for is that they make it interesting and entertaining for us.

Actually the best we can hope for is that our elected leaders act in a moral and just way to the benefit of all humankind, but let's not go nuts.

Good Morning America fails at social media with this Lion King tweet

Well, we'll never know it if it was going to be a good morning or not because we woke up to Good Morning America greeting us in the worst way possible.

Trying to share some Garfield-esque camaraderie about Mondays, GMA missed the fact that in the gif, little Simba is nuzzling up against his dead father, not trying to go back to sleep or whatever.

Devastatingly, before the tweet was removed, 98 people retweeted it, sadly saying that they felt similar this morning. We wish you the best.

This was just another in a long line of social media gaffes, representative of the times. My current favorite was the Spaghetti O's Pearl Harbor commemorative tweet from a few years ago:



Nothing says 'Remember the fallen in an invasive attack on American soil" like Spaghetti O's.
