If you’ve read my blog for a while, you know I’m an active Twitter user.
I joined Twitter relatively early and discovered the higher ed, user experience, and accessibility communities quickly.
Getting to know people on Twitter has been a great opportunity to meet people around the world. People I would normally not have met.
We’ve shared news, help, resources, design and development tips as well as job opportunities.
I even found a job through a connection on Twitter!
Over the years, I’ve noticed the change from discussions about ourselves, work, family, and friends to more serious conversations about social and political change.
And some of the online Twitter discussions became very heated.
Time for Change
In February 2019, I decided it was time for a change in my tweets.
I began tweeting jokes, puns, and riddles at the end of the day. And then started tweeting them at the start of the day.

They helped ground me, helped me to start and end the day on a light, fun note.
I chose to share clean jokes, the kind of jokes you can share with young children as well as adults.
Why did the baker quit their job at the donut company?
They were fed up with the hole business.

And I enjoyed sharing them with my Twitter friends and followers, who in turn shared some of the funniest puns and jokes I’ve heard.

My friend Angela Bowman loved sharing the jokes with her granddaughter so much, she asked me to tag them so she could find them quickly:
Deborah, I need you to hashtag these, so I can look them up quickly when I need to crack a joke for my granddaughter! 🙂 eg #RedCrewLaughs

Since Twitter is a small community, I decided to share some of my jokes on my blog.
Here are some of my favorites:
