A Twitter user called Lewis tweeted that he was "sick" of women complimenting each other online because they don't even know each other.
Sick of going through insta and seeing girls commenting on other girls pictures 'look at u!!??' and 'have you seen yourself??' grow up man you don't even know each other— Lewis (@lewisbcfc74) May 17, 2018
It seemed Lewis was mad about one of the nicest things about the internet; women supporting each other instead of tearing each other down.
Well, Lewis quickly got told off by Twitter user Saya Norton.
I’m Lewis and I get mad at women being nice to each other— Saya Norton (@sayanorton_) May 18, 2018
But then the best thing happened - the next woman to comment on the thread complimented Saya on her lipgloss and so a thread of tweets of women complimenting each other happened because one man wanted to tell women how to respond to each other on the internet.

Lewis to his credit didn't delete the original tweet and we're assuming that his response to the thread was this...
May potentially be the most hated male in the uk right now, but its fantastic— Lewis (@lewisbcfc74) May 17, 2018
The thread is a perfect example of the kind of solidarity that happens in women's bathrooms on a night out. Right?
I know I often think about those girls I lent lipstick to who told me my dress was cute and whose hair I complimented. There's a sisterhood that happens in those small tiled rooms so it's wonderful to see when it's carried over to our Instagram and Twitter feeds?
But it's not just this example that shows women love to compliment each other and will go out of their way to tell another girl she's beautiful. These tweets say it all:
I get more flustered and flattered when women compliment me than I do even when the guy I'm into compliments me lol— farwz (@farwzz) July 2, 2015
