The best tweets are the ones that united people, and the most uniting issues are usually complaints. Memes (and the Internet is general) is all about being relatable, and we understand why: There is nothing that brings humanity further along than mutually hating the same thing or struggling, as people, in the same way. We love to think that we're all unique people and that our problems are all our own, but at the end of the day, we're just, like, a casual eight billion people struggling with the same things. This was proven to — once again — be true when podcast host Mark Magark recently zeroed in on an issue that any human with a computer and an internet connection has encountered — and when we knew he was instantly on to something when everyone made a point saying how much they love it.
Yes, we've all tried to visit Facebook, or Google, or some other actual site relevant to our lives and mistyped. Browsers are so unforgiving — they will redirect you to the wrong place a million times, rather than the site you use on a daily basis.

But what a beautiful observation Mark made. It really brought everyone together for a minute, and there is nothing we need more than a moment of unity — inspired by one of life's most universal, first-world struggles.
