"All fiat 500 twitter do is put themselves down then put the delicate ‘x’ at the end lool"

You've heard of Bare Minimum Twitter, now get ready for... Fiat 500 Twitter. If you've been scrolling through Twitter over the past week, you may have noticed a new subculture forming on your timeline. Well, the subculture had always existed but it's only now that it's been given an official name.

But what does it mean?


'Fiat 500 Twitter' isn't just a phrase or a meme, it's a lifestyle babes. The term was coined by Twitter to describe a certain stereotype of girl from the UK. A twenty-something girl who loves Michael Kors, loves going 'out out', getting her nails done, always tweets about absolutely meaningless stuff with un-ironic 'x's on the end... and they always get about 50k RTs for absolutely no real reason. Essentially it's just a really specific way of calling out someone who is perceived to be a little bit basic.

Why is it called Fiat 500 Twitter?

Apparently, the majority of the girls that fall under this stereotype probably either pay for a Fiat 500 (that's a car, by the way...) on finance or have had one bought for them by their parents. For some reason, it's been crowned the new 'basic' car, replacing the once legendary Mini. (May she rest in basic peace.)

If you meet any of these requirements listed in the tweet below, you are apparently part of 'Fiat 500 Twitter' demographic:

Here's a visual moodboard, in case you were wondering:

Here are some examples of 'Fiat 500 Twitter' being roasted and called out on Twitter:

There's even an account that tweets the same kind of 'Fiat 500 Twitter' tweets, complete with 'x's on the end.

Actual Fiat 500 drivers are shook.

Don't worry... there's a male equivalent too. It's called 'Strongbow Dark Fruits Twitter'. #Lads

Other Twitter subcultures aren't safe, either. Find yourself making Harry Potter references in every day life? Do you have you Hogwarts house in your Twitter bio? Always retweeting your 'lord and saviour' JK Rowling?

So girls, there it is. Long live Fiat 500 Twitter. Now can someone go get me a McDonalds please I haven't had a chicken nugget all year x lol it's only been 4 days omg such a pig loooooool x
