On Tuesday, November 15th, one of Russia’s missiles crossed into Poland, killing two citizens and — according to the Internet — potentially launching us into World War III. After some research, it turns out the missile landed in NATO territory because Ukraine shot it down.
However, initially, in an effort to not panic about the possibility of World War III actually happening, we turned to where we always turn: Twitter. Because, memes.
Twitter did what it did best in the wake of good news, bad news, and things that are not news. So, here are the best World War III tweets and memes we could gather in the meantime. Enjoy them before Elon runs the platform into the ground.

Elon buys twitter for $44B dollars to burn the platform down then 2 weeks later, Putin tries to start WW3.
There's a tiny possibility that there may be more to this story that meets the eye.
