Twitter Thread About Emailing Landlords Is Both Funny & Depressing

There's been a lot of rage directed at landlords of late, and while they're not all bad, we're pretty sure most everyone has dealt with a rotten one. Twitter user @calebsaysthings rallied frustrated tenants with a relatably funny but annoying tweet about how ones tone changes when email an unresponsive landlord. Other users chimed in with their own landlord communication tactics, and even some seriously f*cked up anecdotes. We can't say we disagree with most of this stuff, but we do sympathize with the landlords who give it their all.

    Text - Devin Thomas a @DELAZOO Replying to @calebsaysthings this is IMPORTANT. landlords are not smarter than you, and often aren't well versed in state laws. sending 2 letters like this got me out of a $3k small claims suit for damage caused by their own neglegence/ previous tennants.
