It’s that time of year again, people in their thousands rush to the stores to spend money that they would likely otherwise not be spending, all in the name of savings? Yeah, we haven’t quite worked that one out either yet. But Black Friday isn’t just about new TV’s and Christmas Presents, it also gives birth to some absolutely cracking tweets.
First we go live to WWE color commentator Corey Graves for this wonderful tribute to all of those in retail jobs around the globe, while taking a small pop at the kind of people we can expect to be rushing the stores at opening today.
Shout out to everyone working in retail today, grinding, dealing with people who have never shopped or been in public before!
I’ve been there! Respect! #BlackFriday

We had some wonderful Giffage (Gif usage) from the guys behind the IT Marketing train, promoting the high levels of anxiety creation that both #BlackFriday and their movie tend to create…
Meanwhile the New York Public Library took the opportunity to air a sense of calm to the proceedings with this wonderfully thoughtful tweet.

And our favourite of the day so far (and not exclusively because we are mostly nerds here at Swift Social) we have NASA taking the opportunity to educate the world about blackholes on this #BlackFriday
Don’t let the name fool you…black holes are anything but empty space. Rather, it is a great amount of matter packed into a very small area…sort of like those #BlackFriday stores. Learn more: https://t.co/phUH6bAxRB #BlackHoleFriday pic.twitter.com/DZLYGGECuZ
