Some days (most days, like, all the days) Twitter’s trending topics don’t have a lot to offer. Other days, though, that sidebar is full of important political information, hope-inspiring hashtags, and voices that need to be heard, all presented on one of the largest platforms that currently exists. Today was one of those days. If you spent any time on the site today, you heard about the Senate Democrats gun control filibuster, a flood of open #QueerSelfLove, and some fantastic Trump shut-downs, courtesy of “the gays.” This was some of the best mass content Twitter offers.
BUT LITERALLY NONE OF THAT MATTERS BECAUSE LOOK WHAT ELSE HAPPENED.

And Twitter is just as excited. Filibuster? What filibuster? THIS IS TRUE LOVE.
Just found out about Hiddleswift so I'm sorry I can't work for the rest of the day— Amanda Pendolino (@amandapendo) June 15, 2016
Of course, there are some out there who APPARENTLY DON’T BELIEVE IN LOVE.
Hiddleswift photos are so painfully, painfully staged. Expected better for T.Swift's team.— Daniel Bentley (@DJBentley) June 15, 2016
DON’T TAKE THIS FROM US, PROBABLY CORRECT CYNICS.
I have so many feelings about #Hiddleswift I feel l’m 15 and I DON’T LIKE IT OH GOD MAKE THE EMOTIONAL INVESTMENT STOP— Donna Dickens (@MildlyAmused) June 15, 2016
You don’t actually have to care about this relationship to mine the shit out of the pun possibilities.
WHY WOULD THE PAPARAZZI TAKE PICS OF HIDDLESWIFT? they were trying to be LOKI— Lucia Fasano (@lucia_fasano) June 15, 2016

But without a doubt, the single most important element of this whole thing is the name. OH SWEET GOSSIP GOD, THE NAME.

“Hiddleswift” MAKES NO SENSE. You don’t get to have your full name in the couple name, Tay-Tay! #TeamSwifelston— Daniel Fienberg (@TheFienPrint) June 15, 2016
