The sun is out (sometimes), flowers are in bloom, birds are chirping, and summer is right around the corner.

Here at Phrasee, we are now well into our third year of making awesome email subject lines and other marketing language using amazing AI technology.

We feel… refreshed.

And it seems we are not alone.

Across the email marketing community, positivity abounds.

Well, mostly positivity.

Luckily for those of us who charge our engines on the snark and sarcasm of others, email marketing’s Twitter community and its phantastic tweets once again did not disappoint.

Let’s see how we did this month…

Phrasee’s phavourite email marketing tweets of the month: May 2017

People spoke to us in languages we couldn’t understand…

While we spoke to each other in languages only we could understand…

We used photos to get our point across which clearly had nothing to do with what we were talking about (show us the person who can design emails that make children do this and we’ll show you a billionaire)…

We braced ourselves for a flood of “Star Wars Day” emails, and we weren’t disappointed…

Well, maybe some of us were…

At least we always had schadenfreude… 

Or, failing that, good old blind rage…

There were awesome things which caught our collective eye…

And awesome times to be had with email’s elite (our invitation must’ve gotten lost in the spam folder?)…

Sometimes a tweet is so good that there just isn’t anything you can possibly add… 

And other times when you could add something, but you probably shouldn’t…

But then, when your boss reminds you that you should be blogging about email subject lines, and you realise he’s right…

And while away a few hours scouring tweets containing the word “subject” and the word “line”…

Because the deeper you look, the better they get…

And then, when you feel like you can’t take it anymore, you stumble upon “Big Data Batman”. And realise Big Data Batman is an awesome Twitter bot which scans the Twitterverse for tweets about big data, then replaces the words “big data” with “Batman”.

And you remember why you love Twitter so much and think to yourself “maybe I’ll hang on to that Twitter stock after all, because, you know… Big Data Batman…”

So tweet on, email wunderkind, we’ll be watching as always, and we’ll see you all in June!
