Best Tweets: What Women Said On Twitter This Week

Instagram debuted direct messaging this week, making many tweeters wonder what kind of pictures need to be privately messaged rather than posted publicly. Comedian Sara Schaefer took a guess: "Very excited to hear the news about Instagram direct. I’ve always wanted to try out Kelvin on my junk." Yes Ms. Schaefer, that would definitely be one for a private message.

In other news blowing up the Twittersphere this week, Fox News host Megyn Kelly declared on air that Santa Claus must be white. Writer and producer, Eliza Bayne, was not positive about Santa Claus' race, but definitely knew his nationality: "Santa may or may not be white, but with his obesity problem he's definitely American."

The great Santa Claus debate came to a close Friday morning when Queen Bey dropped a surprise album and made Christmas come early for everyone. Allison Davis put all of the rumors to rest when she tweeted: "The world woke up to a new, surprise Beyonce album. So, Santa IS black, and apparently, Santa is Beyonce."
