Twitter is a meteorologist’s best friend and worst enemy. Meteorologists send out hundreds of tweets per day, and it is such a useful tool for dispensing information. Many times, though, hype will begin and spread like fire on Twitter. Other times, it saves someone’s life. Therefore, Twitter sees the best and worst out of meteorologists every week, and it gets really fascinating to watch. These are the 10 best Tweets I found from this past week!

This tends to happen in the spring/fall occasionally, and is always interesting to see.

Hurricane Matthew reached Category 5 strength this evening. The world was a very different place the last time an Atlantic storm did that pic.twitter.com/rsRnQyFPVp

Hurricane Matthew is and was a beautiful storm, but now it threatens land.

To give some perspective, Hurricane Matthew intensified at a rate that hasn’t been seen in a long time in the Atlantic.

While Hurricane Matthew has been a good looking storm for a while, the appearance was best yesterday.
