25 hilarious tweets about how Zoom calls have made human interactions more awkward than ever

Zoom came to the rescue when turmoil surrounded us and helped people stay connected. And this is how it went.

The pandemic changed the way we communicate with each other. Social distancing became a necessity and our interactions became virtual. While the novelty of working from home in our pajamas has worn down, so has our patience with technology. Zoom came to the rescue and kept people connected and our lives continued online despite the turmoil that surrounded us. Throughout the year, we saw both the blessing and curse that is the gift of video conferencing. From bosses that turned into potatoes to lawyers that turned to cats, we've been immensely entertained.

 



 

 

But we're at that point in the pandemic where we can rightfully say that we are tired of Zoom meetings. And there is even an accurate term to describe it, aptly called "Zoom fatigue." Andrew Franklin, an assistant professor of cyberpsychology at Virginia’s Norfolk State University told National Geographic “There's a lot of research that shows we actually really struggle with this.” It has been taking a toll on people, who are coping with it in the best way they know, humor. Here are some of the funniest tweets that are relatable as well if you've spent much of your time on Zoom this past year.
