Pampered celebrities with their luxury lifestyles aren’t immune to a good Twitter tantrum so they should support a new charity campaign
Life can be tough sometimes.
Just ask the 5,000 people who take to Twitter to grumble about their #firstworldproblems every day.
From unevenly sliced bagels making our blood boil to running our of patience waiting 15 seconds for a YouTube video to load, in the absence of any real problems we seem determined to invent our own and tell the world about them.
Even pampered celebrities with their luxury lifestyles aren’t immune to a good Twitter tantrum.
The charity Computer Aid International has launched a new campaign called First World Pennies to urge people to donate money to children in developing countries who have much bigger problems than them.
The site continually counts all the #firstworldproblems tweets and calculates what the charity could achieve for children in developing countries if those problems were pennies.
It invites people to share a penny, not a problem, and help turn the 5,000 daily #firstworldproblems into third world solutions.
We decided to round up some of the best tweets to mark the fact that in comparison, most lives aren't so bad (all spellings are the celebrities' own...).
