Anonymous Twitter users are often associated with trolling the Internet, spreading rumors and promoting hateful rhetoric through their faceless accounts. But that's not the case with user @savethemhood, who just made Twitter history in the coolest way ever.
Through one simple tweet, @savethemhood gave roughly $11,000, or 14,000,000 dogecoins, to Doge4Water, an initiative helping to bring clean water to Kenya. According to Forbes, that's the most money ever donated directly through a single tweet.

The user @savethemhood is part of the dogecoin community, the members of which use dogecoin, a form of digital currency, to buy products, trade for other currencies, "tip" online users who create or share great content, or -- in @savethemhood's case -- help impoverished communities.
By sending the tweet to an automated donation bot, @savethemhood gave more than a third of Doge4Water's overall goal of $30,000, which will go toward digging wells in Kenya, NBC News reports. Doge4Water was hoping to reach its target by World Water Day on March 22, and @savethemhood's massive gift sealed the deal.
