Planet Jedward

Jedward have been sliding into people's DMs since getting their Twitter account back

That’s one way to make a comeback

WHAT WERE YOU doing between the 16 October 2017 and 10 December?

Listen, I don’t blame you if you can’t remember. I’m currently struggling to recall what I had for breakfast this morning. During those months, former X Factor and Celebrity Big Brother contestants Jedward were suspended from Twitter over a copyright issue.

They’d previously been suspended for resharing their own version of Taylor Swift’s video for ‘Look What You Made Me Do’, on their account @planetjedward. As Swifties were concerned that the lads would affect her viewing figures, they decided the only logical thing to do was report those pesky twins.

Nevertheless, they persisted, setting up a second unverified account, @JepicHQ which is where they’ve been posting from … Until now.

The lads got their account back three days ago, and have been making up for lost time since.

“Hello everyone on Twitter we are so happy to be back,” they said in a Notes app statement. How 2018 of them.

“Life has not been the same without @PlanetJedward we are only making this notes thing because it’s so celebrity to act like people have time to read about our social media problems lol.

“Anyway in the time we have not had our official Twitter we have been cheating on Twitter with Instagram and Snapchat. Feels like we are returning to our ex.

We have missed our verified status since we were like the 1st people to tell everyone about this unknown platform in the UK and Ireland with many of our tweets making TV shows and newspapers and everyone loves some Jedward in their life.
We were officially the OGs of Twitter.”

Wow, Stephen Fry has just been read for filth.

Their reemergence hasn’t gone unnoticed by other Twitter users – and when they tweeted about it, Jedward got straight into their DMs. (Harmless enough stuff, I hasten to add.)


How convenient it is though, that the lads are back ahead of their 10th anniversary (!) next year. Ten years of Jedward. Let that sink in. 

On another note though, these lads are 27 year-old and still look exactly the same. What fountain of youth are they drinking from?

Is this the modern day horror equivalent of saying ‘Jedward’ three times in a mirror? Tweet, and they will come?
