July is over. We will have to wait for another year for the Tour de France and Tour de France Femmes again. 

But fret not - tweets of the week is here.

We're here to cheer you up and improve your spirits with some of the best offerings of Twitter-related content witnessed on the platform over the past week.

12. Honestly, at this rate, it's just good practice to announce that Formula 1 reserve driver Oscar Piastri hasn't signed for your team - regardless if it's the wrong sport
