We still don’t know why, late on Monday evening #TimesNewRoman started trending on Twitter. No one seemed to know. (And a lot of the noise was just people trying to figure it out.)
But the reactions were priceless.
Saw Times New Roman trending and thought it had been murdered by that bastard Garamond.

And then, of course, because it’s January 2020, things had to get political:
Why use Arial or Times New Roman when you can use Ugly Gerry, the font made entirely out of gerrymandered congressional districts? pic.twitter.com/V1OcsNiJMu

Meanwhile if you know why Times New Roman ended up trending let us know. We’re curious!
