32 Jaden Smith Tweets That Had Us All Confused

Jaden Smith has a lot of thoughts in his head. That’s been clear to everyone on Twitter since he joined the social media platform in March 2011 and started unleashing some of the hottest takes ever seen on the internet.

The young actor, rapper, and singer boasts over 8 million followers, whether from Smith family superfans (Jaden’s parents are Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, and his sister is Willow Smith) or fans of Jaden’s own projects. Whether you’re a Jaden Smith movie fan, interested in his recent musical endeavors, or simply a Jaden Smith Twitter enthusiast, there’s always a tweet for you.

To celebrate Jaden’s 23rd birthday, here are 32 of his finest (and most bizarre) tweets from over the years.

Jaden Smith tweets: He’s a citizen of Planet Earth, first and foremost

Jaden appears to have spent some time in November 2014 contemplating our place in the cosmos (we’ve all been there.) These 2 tweets express a firm desire for all humans to explore Earth as easily as a U.S. resident can travel from state to state. 

Wise words from one Earthling who was thinking way ahead of the curve 7 whole years ago. 

Jaden Smith tweets: Movie and television connoisseur 

Put aside Jaden’s own acting and music career, as well as his famous family for a moment. He appears to have spent 2020 the same way a lot of us did: killing time by catching up on recent popular Hollywood movies and television shows.

Jaden seemingly gave a nod of approval toward Steven Spielberg’s 2018 film Ready Player One in March 2020. It’s unclear whether he had seen it prior to this tweet, but he certainly felt confident about recommending it to his followers.

Over a year later, we find Jaden tweeting about Ready Player One again — this time calling it one of the best movies of all time. That’s high praise. Given that an adaptation of the original novel’s sequel, Ready Player Two, is reportedly in development, perhaps the young star could angle for a role in the next film.

Jaden must have checked out the Netflix original series Stranger Things that very same day in March 2020 because he similarly recommended his followers watch the spooky ‘80s nostalgia trip. 

Anticipating the next season of a show brings all people (or, as Jaden might say, all citizens of Earth) together. Fortunately, Stranger Things is returning for a 4th season soon, though we don’t yet know when it will be released.

Jaden Smith tweets: The classics (2012-2013)

You know them, you love them: these are the tweets that put Jaden Smith’s Twitter account on the map. 

The 6th amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads as follows: 

“In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.”

To this day, we’re not sure what Jaden meant, or which part of the amendment he alludes to here.

Since newborn babies can’t speak, we have no real way of confirming or debunking this theory. This tweet ties in with Jaden’s one-time obsession with criticizing traditional education systems, so let’s assume the idea here is that newborn babies are most intelligent because they have not yet been sent to school. Look, school isn’t for everybody, but at least his argument here tracks.

Hands-down one of Jaden’s all-time best tweets. We’re not sure where he developed the notion that mirrors are not in fact real, but we’re happy he’s rolling with it. Jaden tweeted this when he was only 15 — does he still feel that mirrors aren’t real?

Can’t a 15-year-old in 2013 just get some floss?

Maybe Jaden really does see something the rest of us don’t.

We don’t know why anyone would call Jaden Smith Scoop Life, but we’ve been dying to find out since 2013.

Somehow, Jaden’s “I turned 15 long ago” comment isn’t as baffling as his attempt at fitting this prose-style writing into one tweet. We’re shrugging our shoulders here. For some background, it seems the person named Mateo referenced in this tweet might be Mateo Arias, of Disney Channel fame. Reportedly, he and Jaden Smith are close friends.

We’re not sure why it is “always” 3, either, but there is plenty of historical support for the number’s overall significance. Citizens of Earth do seem to put a lot of stock in the number 3.

Jaden Smith tweets: Oddly inspirational

Jaden Smith’s tweets aren’t always purely baffling. Occasionally he offers up some thoughts and advice that some of us can learn a thing or 2 from… even if the thought on its face is still pretty baffling.

The core of this message is simple: Jaden says people shouldn’t limit themselves to what others make of them. What a nice thought!

Sometimes you just need to make sure everyone is on the same page.

This feels like a chicken-and-the-egg scenario, no?

This tweet is almost 6 years old, but it feels on par with today’s Gen Z style of online humor.

Jaden has put in some work toward helping unhoused people in Los Angeles by way of opening a restaurant that serves free food. This tweet shares that sentiment and energy, although it seems a little more difficult of a feat to pull off. 

Jaden Smith tweets: The ultimate galaxy-brain thoughts

We don’t always have a great explanation for Jaden Smith’s thoughts. Here are some of his more, ahem, interesting observations over the years:

Jaden Smith makes an interesting point about the American obsession with celebrity culture here. No word on who the ominous “they” he referenced might be, though.

We’re not sure we can co-sponsor this suggestion.

Something about some retroactive love for his first album, Syre, didn’t sit well with Jaden. This tweet came just over 1 year after the album was released in 2017.

Honestly, this is a wonderfully diplomatic thought to keep in mind. It helps that this tweet references 2015 internet sensation The Dress, which lives forever in our heads rent-free. 

It’s safe to say we’ve all been there.

He may not speak English, but he certainly tweets in English. Semantics.
