For the country legend, tweeting isn't reserved for 9 to 5.
Where would country music be without Dolly Parton?
The powerhouse vocalist, songwriter, and actress has been recording for over half a century, but her age and decades of success certainly don't compromise her social media presence. Just take a scroll through her Twitter, which offers no shortage of throwback photos and shoutouts to her friends who've been by her side throughout the years.
2019 was a big year for country music, with Lil Nas X smashing chart records and acts like the Highwomen dropping new material. But let's not forget our Queen Dolly. Let's take a look at some of her best tweets of the year.
The bigger the hair the bigger the…hoops. Well what did you think I was going to say? https://t.co/MVkr9ODrJ1— Dolly Parton (@Dolly Parton)1575223232.0
If you've ever heard "the higher the hair, the closer to God," you're probably from the South. If you've ever heard "the bigger the hoops, the bigger the…"—we'll let you finish that one yourself—you probably were a girl in middle school. Parton combined the two phrases with a classic photo of herself, complete with massive hair and hoops.
It’s called fashion look it up 😉 #tbt @Janefonda https://t.co/Kzlf0oNikf— Dolly Parton (@Dolly Parton)1570136423.0
Parton sure is a fan of a good throwback photo, especially when it includes some of her industry peers. We're not sure why she and her pal Jane Fonda were decked out in renaissance garb, but they looked damn fabulous doing it.
Welcome to Pollywood 🐦 https://t.co/xfaYdjJbEY— Dolly Parton (@Dolly Parton)1569358824.0
If you've ever explored Parton's home state of Tennessee, you might be familiar with Dollywood, her namesake theme park nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains. But the puns don't stop there: Once you see Parton standing scarecrow style with her arms full of parrots, well, you've made it to Pollywood.
Before he took his horse down to the Old Town Road 😉 #tbt @billyraycyrus https://t.co/1BFmVqkX2e— Dolly Parton (@Dolly Parton)1566504019.0
Is Parton extremely up to date with modern pop culture, or has "Old Town Road" transcended generations? Either way, she still showed the love for her longtime friend—and father of her goddaughter—Billy Ray Cyrus, clarifying the photo was taken "before he took his horse to the Old Town Road."
When you realize it’s only Thursday… #tbt https://t.co/cbsgvvlxZr— Dolly Parton (@Dolly Parton)1565899200.0
Parton also has a plethora of reaction photos up her sleeve. This one perfectly summarizes all of our sentiments when it is, in fact, not Friday.

The appreciation for "Old Town Road" doesn't stop, and it looks like Lil Nas X and Parton share a mutual admiration for each other. When Lil Nas X tweeted, "y'all think i can get dolly parton and megan thee stallion on a old town road remix?" Parton responded with an edited version of the single artwork featuring a pink-furred, blonde-wigged horse, definitely representing herself. So, where's the remix, Dolly?
Love the outfit from head to toe @PostMalone 😉 https://t.co/Qxxhpi96NO— Dolly Parton (@Dolly Parton)1560709643.0
Maybe Parton is in tune with pop culture, after all—or she at least appreciates the instances in which today's stars don a head-to-toe matching ensemble featuring her likeness. Post Malone wore just that, and much to our delight, Parton gave him a shout out.
#transformationtuesday 🤣 @mileycyrus https://t.co/EPuq817WfR— Dolly Parton (@Dolly Parton)1555452028.0
Out of all the iconic generation-spanning cameos Hannah Montana blessed us with, "Aunt Dolly" has to be one of the most memorable. Though it's been over a decade since Parton first shared the small screen with her goddaughter Miley Cyrus, she's aged incredibly well—as evidenced by the Transformation Tuesday photos she shared.
Even to this day, "Dark Tournament" remains the defining shonen "Tournament Arc."
Oftentimes, it's impossible to separate the quality of the anime we grew up watching from the sense of nostalgia those series evoke.
Case in point: Dragon Ball Z. Historically, DBZ is likely the most influential anime series of all time, both redefining the shonen genre for every series that came after it and introducing an entire generation of Western kids to Japanese animation through the legendary Funimation dub on Cartoon Network's Toonami block. Chances are high that if you meet someone who loves anime and grew up in the late '90s or early 2000s, they'll have a deeply personal bond with DBZ.
At the same time, it's hard to argue that DBZ holds up in the modern day, especially for new viewers coming in with fresh eyes. The pacing of the original series is super slow, the fights drag out forever, and while DBZ created so many of shonen's most prevalent tropes ("This isn't even my final form!"), almost everything DBZ ever did has since been done better by other series.
About a year after being accused of selling furniture to ICE detention centers, e-commerce site Wayfair is in another controversy.
Wayfair, the e-commerce website beloved by millennials on a budget who don't want their apartments to look just like IKEA showrooms, is no stranger to controversy.
Last summer, employees of the company organized a protest after allegations surfaced that Wayfair had sold $200,000 worth of furniture to border detention facilities. Now, Wayfair is being suspected of trafficking missing children in their furniture.
