Falling down has always been funny. We get it. We, too, have watched "America's Funniest Home Videos." Things that are not funny: falling down on purpose and hurting yourself for Twitter fame.
The hot new thing, according to some, is called Twipping, and you do it by taking a selfie of yourself falling down the stairs and uploading it to Twitter. We're going to give that one big "nope."

To be fair, the hashtag hasn't totally hit it big yet, but there are a plethora of people who are tweeting photos of themselves falling down the stairs. Specifically, there are many people who are falling down the stairs because they are taking selfies and not paying attention.
Please, we beg of you, put down your phone every once in a while
