9 Hilarious Twitter Responses to President Nelson's 7-Day Social Media Fast Challenge


Whether or not you were tuned into President Nelson's worldwide devotional last night, you probably have already heard the news: the youth are taking a seven-day social media fast. 

And while some above the age of 18 are also taking the challenge, most adults can sit back and enjoy the following week as the youth struggle to stay away from social media. In fact, here are some hilarious tweets from youth and adults alike:
