There's a Twitter account called Weird Online Reviews (@reviews0context) and it collects fan-submitted pictures of consumer comments that aren't as wholesome or witty. Rather, a bit more dark and twisted. However, they can be just as funny if your sense of humor prefers that kind of stuff. No judging!
The staff at Bored Panda added a few reviews with similar vibes to this list from our own hard drives but that's just because we had them laying around and remembered only after we discovered Weird Online Reviews.
"Me and my buddy Bl43ch created the account together and wanted to post weird reviews we'd either find ourselves or have followers submit their own online reviews they found," moosh told Bored Panda. "There are a lot of other Twitter accounts with a similar premise but different topics, so we wanted to make one exclusive to weird reviews found online."
So even though just a couple of guys can actually log in to Weird Online Reviews, in a way, all of its 67.8K followers are responsible for what appears in its feed. "Sometimes we find our content either by ourselves (like here) or we have our followers direct message us with something they found themselves."
As for curation, the duo doesn't overthink it. "If the review is funny and/or weird, we'll probably share it. If it's kind of mediocre or not really interesting, we probably won't," moosh explained.
"We also don't really tend to post long reviews because a follower is less likely to sit and read through the whole thing. Except those that are genuinely really good," moosh added.
moosh couldn't recall a specific product or topic that their followers engage with the most. Whether people like it or not, it usually depends on that particular tweet.
"It's really random most of the time. We had one tweet reach over 21,000,000 impressions and it was some guy giving a mattress a one-star review because he was 'drunk at the time and thought it was a giant ice cream sandwich.'"
Statista reported that in 2021, over 2.14 billion people worldwide are expected to buy goods and services online (up from 1.66 billion global digital buyers in 2016). So chances are we'll see more of Weird Online Reviews too!
