Well, it feels like the whole world is on board with feeling like the apocalypse is here. Right now on Twitter, “Signs the Apocalypse Has Arrived” (#SignstheApocalypseHasArrived) is trending on Twitter. It’s a lovely way to start your 2020 Sunday. So why do people think the apocalypse has arrived this time? Here are the top tweets and photos about it all that you might have missed.
First, there are the skies turning red in the western half of the United States, making it look like Mars over there. It’s heartbreaking. :( That’s one of the top tweets right now for the trend.

How about cardboard cutouts watching sports in a dystopian hellscape? It’s not part of the trend right now on Twitter but it should be.
I’d like to nominate cardboard humans watching baseball in a dystopian hell scape for photo of the year, thanks. pic.twitter.com/DeQmFjuM45

Remember when toilet paper ran out? I think we’re still low on Clorox wipes, but the toilet paper is back…isn’t it? I’m not even sure because reality is so confusing.
This iconic photo is the perfect illustration of 2020.

The trend itself is a sign.
Or maybe just the entire year is a sign.
