Everyone is feeling the Zoom fatigue as of late, what with the work meetings and the virtual hangouts with friends over the quarantine period. If you’re one of those feeling it, then you will find the following tweets relatable.
- When you’re on mute:
Muted on a Zoom https://t.co/fhIzGZisBA

- The game begins:
There’s awkward and then there’s “the zoom meeting is over and you and one other person can’t figure out how to leave the meeting” awkward.

- The ultimate betrayal:
Just farted on a zoom call and it lit my name up.
I've been betrayed

- Underrated sport: Parenting while WFH
Hobbies include: working from home, being in 43 daily Zoom calls, telling my kids to cut the shit for the 100th time I'm on a goddamn Zoom call, forgetting to put myself on mute

- Just another day:
Another day, another 30 zoom calls pic.twitter.com/QBGlwfr3n3

- A marketable skill, tbh:
Gonna update my CV to say "survived 1000 Zoom calls that should've been an email" as part of my achievements in 2020.

- The introvert’s nightmare:
I think I'd be okay if I never had another video chat in my life.
It was fine when it was limited to work interactions…but when it started bleeding in to all personal interactions, that was it. Too much.

- What make Zoom meetings bearable:
the only good thing about zoom calls is when a dog barks and everyone makes them show the dog, so now you get to see a dog
— Lane Moore (@hellolanemoore) June 24, 2020
- “I think-, you go”:
Did you know it’s physically impossible NOT to talk at the exact same time as the other person during a zoom meeting? It’s going to happen and it is going to be awkward.
— Will Elliott (@Will_Elliott22) July 1, 2020
- That’s a start:
I got me some lights to improve the quality of my zoom. Once I learn how to comb my hair, apply make up, sit up straight and look properly into the camera, its over for you hoes!
— roxane gay (@rgay) July 1, 2020
- OMG you are so funny (insert rolls eyes emoji):
unmuting the zoom to fake laugh
— Bridget Todd 💁🏿 (@BridgetMarie) June 23, 2020
- Camera placement, VERY important:
Another excellent zoom call with my mom’s forehead.
— Lauren Hough -BLM-ACAB (@laurenthehough) June 22, 2020
- The moment you’ve been waiting for:
unmuting your microphone just to say “thank you. bye everyone” ❤️
— NomaL (@lungeIo) July 3, 2020
- Children, the best entertainment:
Finally had one of those zoom meetings where a small child runs in and shouts random things. good times
— Jenna Ortega (@jennaortega) July 3, 2020
- That awkward moment when:
on a zoom call you start telling jokes. everyone laughs. you keep going. the laughter continues. then, at the end of the call, you notice your mic is on mute
— john (@mrjohndarby) June 30, 2020
- Now this I’d love to see:
I can only hope that the Presidential debates are done via zoom with spotty wifi and alternating random backgrounds.
— Neal Brennan (@nealbrennan) June 26, 2020
- And there are people who are never punctual, regardless of platform:
If ur zoom meeting is at 1pm… show up at 1:03pm… don’t be so thirsty.
— Sydnee Washington (@Justsydnyc) June 22, 2020
- Perks of Zoom-ing:
Boss: What do you think?
Me: [going to the bathroom]
Boss: Can you hear me?
Me: [getting another beer]
Boss: I think he's on mute.
Me: [getting chips]
Me: sorry I was on mute

- The Great Gatsby, circa 2020:
do u think 2020 will become a party theme like 1920 did? but instead of prohibition signs and those feather headbands, it'll be the zoom logo and cloth masks?
— isa (@happpysoup) June 30, 2020
- Collective understanding:
have grown to love the tension that arises on a zoom call when a single unaware person has noise happening in their background & everyone knows who it is but everyone is also waiting for it to stop on its own so that no one has to do the "…did everyone silence their mic?" thing
— Hanif Abdurraqib (@NifMuhammad) June 30, 2020
- Unbelievable, no?
Can’t believe in 2020 Zoom fatigue is about staring at each other in computers and not being tired of flying cars
— Mike Zakarian (@MikeZakarian) June 18, 2020
Luahan Wartawan: Well, when we were younger, we envisioned 2020 to be like a scene out of The Jetsons, with flying cars and what nots.
Come to think of it, we are sort of living in a scene out of Resident Evil if you remember the conspiracy theory that was floating around earlier this year.
While we do have technological advancement, no one ever thought that we would be stuck at home due to a pandemic that started off as an innocent flu.
Working from home maybe a dream come true for many, but I am sure no one expected Zoom meetings to become a norm.
