Welcome to Tuesday.

Do you have a monumental idea ready to take the world by storm but you’re not quite sure how to execute it? Just tweet it.

The level of quick wit and genius ceases to amaze me on Twitter. I remember seeing a photo of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o circulating a few weeks ago with several Twitter users exchanging possible plotlines for a fantasy heist film starring the iconic celebs. Then it happened. Netflix acquired the rights to the concept with Issa Rae on board to write the script and Ava DuVernay as a possible director. So what about the original tweets? According to Vanity Fair, those Twitter users will be “credited and included in some form.”

The internet remains undefeated. Tweet your vision into existence.
