A tweet by user Amy Rios has been triggering people on Twitter to get creative using a very limited amount of words. The tweet reads "Write the saddest story you can using only 4 words" and responses have ranged from "Jaffa Cakes are extinct" to "He loved. She didn't." Deep.
We've gathered the best of the bunch for your enjoyment.
