The Internet is like a sea of vast opportunities. Some of them positive, some negative, and some downright outrageous. It can be hard to keep up with the ever-changing waves of public opinion, proven facts, and overall foolishness. I sometimes Google “What is the Internet mad about today?” just for fun. Well, today was one of those days I stumbled across something quite controversial. Twitter erupted over the hashtag #millenialretirementplans with opinions from all sides. Young, old, rich, poor, and everyone in between came ready with Twitter fingers ablaze. Take a look at some of the best and even most controversial opinions on the fate of millennial retirement.
Just gonna slap two pieces of avocado toast over my ears to drown out Boomer advice, cover myself in medical bills, and let the rising seas carry me off on a raft of my old protest signs ✌️🥑 #MillenialRetirementPlans— Emily (@riseandsci) September 17, 2019

Either I'm drowning in debt and homeless because wages are not keeping pace with inflation, or maybe a neutron star goes berserk and we are all released from this hell.#millenialretirementplans— ShadBad (@ShadBadz) September 17, 2019
Yikes! Retirement saving can be scary no matter what age you are. However, people from the opposing side seemed to have all the answers. Here’s some of their opinions.
Spent most of my 20s living with roommates and driving the same car for 8+ years to keep expenses low. Used the savings to invest in 401(k) & IRA so at age 30 I’ve got 1x my annual salary saved. It requires sacrifices, but some of us do have #millenialretirementplans— Alex Johannigman (@thecatholicjazz) September 17, 2019
