It's been almost one year since Ryan Reynolds joined Twitter, and a little over a year since he and wife Blake Lively welcomed their daughter to the world. Over the course of the past twelve months, he's sent precisely 493 tweets, slowly developing his "dad voice." Like the internet equivalent of khaki pants, Reynolds' Twitter yelps "Netflix and Chill!" It declares things "Squad-Goals," capitalized and hyphenated. It uses brand-sponsored hashtags. It will not stop promoting a movie that isn't coming out for another two months. Here, 25 of his most egregious dad tweets of the year, annotated by the collective embarrassed teen that lives within us all and soon — if the universe is to remain balanced — his own daughter:
