Yesterday, after all these years and having to suffer through too many of Donald Trump's juvenile rants, we finally received the long-awaited reason for Twitter's existence.
When Coleen Rooney outed Rebekah Vardy as the alleged culprit who had been leaking stories about her to the tabloids, the social media platform was set alight. It was all anyone could talk about, became an instant meme and made the front pages of more than one newspaper today. '#WAGatha Christie' was trending, for god's sake.
It's safe to say that the high drama provided welcome respite from the budget, Brexit and all the grim stuff happening in the world today.
With that in mind, here are the 10 best tweets relating to WAGgate...
