About

Load-Bearing Posts refers to a slang term for memes, tweets and other viral content that significantly altered internet discourse, trends, language and meme formats, ultimately supporting the breadth of internet culture like a building's "load-bearing wall" or "beam." Coined in mid-2024, a viral debate ensued on Twitter / X about what posts were load-bearing. Variant debates ensued after, like what posts were "not load-bearing" and instead only held significance in the personal lexicon.

Origin

On May 23rd, 2024, X[1] user @Wangleberry tweeted, "What are the load-bearing posts of our time?" further namedropping memes like Dril's I Will Face God and Walk Backwards Into Hell tweet, Miette and Ed Balls as possible examples. Over two weeks, the tweet received roughly 240.6 million views and 23,000 likes (shown below).
