(in its original sense) Posting with little effort or care as to what will happen after you submit "post." Shitposting also occurs in subcategories:
- Actual shitposting: when you become so enraged that you rape your keyboard with your unholy fingers. Often, the resulting post will be deemed as unfunny, awful, racist, or in general of poor taste.
- Funny shitposting: when you think of a terrible idea to post on twitter dot com
or some other website, and of which is often bizarre, full of eggcorns
and other grammatical errors and general so bad it's good
. Take @dril
use the word) any post which is just a mildly silly, #relatable
joke. It doesn't matter what the joke is, though usually it's involved with unfunny meme from 2013, like thicc
or dank memes
. Usually, if the post is on Twitter, it's actually a draft saved from two weeks ago. Also, "shitposting account" are usually only half of these, with the other half dedicated to retweets from literally who
's rant on the patriarchy, "satisfying
" stuff or in general boring shit one would expect Sally
from middle school would post on her Tumblr blog.
