UAE tweets: funny short stories, and should cinemas admit babies?
Around the UAE
@LifeNationalUAE: “Summer in Abu Dhabi is back @ADNEC, with something for everyone from youngsters to thrill-seeking teens http://www.thenational.ae/lifestyle/family/get-ready-for-a-summer-of-cool-fun-at-adnec”.
Check out the trending topic #EmiratisOnVacation, which had us laughing. As @FearlessinDubai put it: “The best thing about the hashtag #EmiratisOnVacation is that we don’t mind laughing at ourselves. Hilarious tweets!”
It’s been a great week for trends. There’s something good about this heat if it keeps everyone indoors writing things that make us laugh. This week we liked #AStories, a 140-character short story. A shoot off from @3aibAndTheCity: “PS, I strongly recommend you check out #AStories, inspired of course by my #SilentStories ideas. Just funnier”.
Tweet us your thoughts on the news that infants may be banned from cinemas soon. We certainly know how @DubaiNameShame feels about babies in cinemas: “Cinemas may ban babies from all films: http://www.thenational.ae/events/categories/children/cinemas-may-ban-babies-from-all-films – PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do it NOW”. But how do you feel? Tweet us @LifeNationalUAE.
