Boy George is a Twitter genius

And here's why...

In the confusing mire that is Twitter, it's very often difficult to see the wood for the trees. 

From the high horse riding, morally perfect preachers who'll find anything to latch onto with their uber woke rhetoric, to the far-right trolls whose only aim is to discriminate, enrage and bully, you can't move for futile debate firing off all over Twitter. 

There's fandoms wars, Stans, Scottish patter, endless Love Island chat, Dark Fruits Twitter, Fiat 500 Twitter, influencers and insulters, but amongst all of this noise and confusion there's a shining light... and he's called Boy George.

This is a man who users Twitter in its primary form, an honest, hilarious, tongue-in-cheek social commentary of whatever goes through his mind about what's goes on around him - with absolutely no fear of individual or subject.

From the success of Iron Maiden to the worries of making soup, the compulsive watching of Sunday Brunch to 'beige yawns', below you'll find a small selection of our favourite Boy George tweets...

Here we see him proving what we already knew...

...while also showing that, like all of us, he finds himself hilarious...

In response to a Trump supporter posting out bumper stickers to fellow supporters, Boy George has other more pressing, non-political matters to discuss...

...as well as beautifully destroying trolls

He can even throw shade at himself in hilarious fashion too...

In response to being labelled bi-phobic...

And for all of this we salute you, Boy George, and your tremendous tweets. But let's not forget that one about Elton John...

"All that money and he's still got hair like a f**king dinner lady."

Oh, Boy.
