THIS. This is what Twitter is for. Not for staying in touch with people, not for staying on top of the news, and certainly not for updating us with moment-to-moment photos of your lunch. (No, not even if you reproduced Rachel Ray’s Caprese Salad perfectly. Not even then.)
Twitter is for flooding the Internet with the best possible one-liners when anything happens in pop culture. And the birth of a royal baby is exactly the kind of pop culture that spawns a slew of puns and jokes, all neatly tied up into 140-character bundles.
Behold, the funniest #RoyalBaby tweets–so far.

Oh, wait, that's just the damage done by four babies stomping on my bladder in utero.

Unless a crapton of Cheerios, flattened Capri Sun bags, and a couple of binkies rolled out of the car when they opened the minivan door, they are not yet in "parent mode."

Naming a baby is no joke, sir. 9 of 14
You can't just name a baby based on what would be cute when she's a baby. You have to think down the road to when she's queen. So Amidala would obviously be the better choice here.

No, it had something to do with being charged too much tax for my chai tea when the girl at Starbucks can't even spell my name right.
