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.
Anyone Born On This Planet Should Have A Planetary Citizenship Enabling Them To Freely Explore There Home
— Jaden (@jaden) November 2, 2014
Currently Going Through Customs Even Though I Was Born On This Planet.
— Jaden (@jaden) November 25, 2014
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 (@jaden) March 19, 2020
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.
Ready Player One Is One Of The Best Movie Of All Time And Now Everyone Can See It’s Influence
— Jaden (@jaden) April 10, 2021
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.
If You Haven’t Seen Stranger Things Do Yourself A Favor
— Jaden (@jaden) March 19, 2020
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.
Stranger Things Better Come Back
— Jaden (@jaden) October 21, 2020
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.
I Only Apply To The Sixth Amendment
— Jaden (@jaden) December 16, 2012
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.
If Newborn Babies Could Speak They Would Be The Most Intelligent Beings On Planet Earth.
— Jaden (@jaden) September 12, 2013
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.
How Can Mirrors Be Real If Our Eyes Aren’t Real
— Jaden (@jaden) May 2, 2013
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?
Umm Who Has The Floss
— Jaden (@jaden) March 10, 2013
Can’t a 15-year-old in 2013 just get some floss?
Most Trees Are Blue
— Jaden (@jaden) March 23, 2013
Maybe Jaden really does see something the rest of us don’t.
Lately People Call Me Scoop Life
— Jaden (@jaden) May 25, 2013
We don’t know why anyone would call Jaden Smith Scoop Life, but we’ve been dying to find out since 2013.
“It’s Your Birthday” Mateo Said. I Didn’t Respond. “Are You Not Excited To Be 15” He Asked. Reading My Book I Uttered “I Turned 15 Long Ago”
— Jaden (@jaden) July 9, 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.
Why Is It Always 3 WHY IS IT ALWAYS 3!!!!!
— Jaden (@jaden) September 29, 2013
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.
All The Rules In This World Were Made By Someone No Smarter Than You.
So Make Your Own.
— Jaden (@jaden) September 9, 2013
The core of this message is simple: Jaden says people shouldn’t limit themselves to what others make of them. What a nice thought!
I Wanna Remind Everyone That I Am Not Crazy
— Jaden (@jaden) July 5, 2019
Sometimes you just need to make sure everyone is on the same page.
The More Time You Spend Awake The More Time You Spend Asleep.
— Jaden (@jaden) February 13, 2015
This feels like a chicken-and-the-egg scenario, no?
The Biggest Flex Anyone Will Ever Have Is Dying.
— Jaden (@jaden) September 4, 2015
This tweet is almost 6 years old, but it feels on par with today’s Gen Z style of online humor.
Tryna Find A Way To Efficiently Donate Stocks To The Homeless And To Underserved Communities Around The World.
— Jaden (@jaden) February 24, 2021
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:
They Distract You With Us So You Don’t Pay Attention To The Missing Girls In Nigeria.
— Jaden (@jaden) May 15, 2014
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.
Mix The Whiskey With The Benadryl.
— Jaden (@jaden) July 7, 2019
We’re not sure we can co-sponsor this suggestion.
Everybody Loves SYRE Now, But Where Were You When I Was Throwing Up In The Hill’s Crying For 3 Years Straight? ERYS Put The Iced Out Cartier Love Ring On SYRE’s Grave. It’s Funny How People Start To Love You When It’s Already Too Late.
— Jaden (@jaden) November 26, 2018
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.
Whenever You Disagree With Somebody Just Remember The Dress And Accept That You Guys Are SEEING Two Different Things.
— Jaden (@jaden) March 24, 2015
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.
That Moment When Peeing Feels So Good You Start Crying.
— Jaden (@jaden) March 20, 2015
It’s safe to say we’ve all been there.
I Am Not A Human And I Don’t Speak English
— Jaden (@jaden) May 30, 2018
He may not speak English, but he certainly tweets in English. Semantics.
People Think A RelationShip Makes You Whole, That It’s Two 50%’s Coming Together To Make 100% When It Should Be Two 100%’s Making 200%•••
— Jaden (@jaden) March 5, 2014
Here is one of Jaden’s tweets from 2013 in which he criticizes the education system.
School Is The Tool To Brainwash The Youth.
— Jaden (@jaden) September 12, 2013
Around this time in 2013, Jaden Smith reportedly sought emancipation from his family with their consent so he could experience life out of the celebrity “bubble” he grew up in due to his parents’ careers. It’s safe to say he likely felt quite rebellious in those days. We’re not sure how he feels about education as an adult, however.
Never Go Inside Cellphones At Night
— Jaden (@jaden) November 19, 2020
Maybe he simply means don’t use your cell phone at night? Beyond that, this tweet has us baffled.
If A Book Store Never Runs Out Of A Certain Book, Dose That Mean That Nobody Reads It, Or Everybody Reads It
— Jaden (@jaden) August 7, 2013
We’ve thought about this, too. It has to indicate a book’s popularity, right?
Jaden Smith tweets: Prophecies?
We’re not sure Jaden Smith can really tell the future, but that hasn’t stopped him from trying to make some predictions via Twitter in the past.
The Head Of The Sphinx Will Fall Off In The Near Future.
— Jaden (@jaden) December 24, 2014
As far as we can tell, the Great Sphinx of Giza, located in Egypt, still has its head attached. Perhaps Jaden was referencing the fact that the Sphinx’s nose is missing?
A lot Of My Tweets Will Come True In 2018
— Jaden (@jaden) January 1, 2018
On New Year’s Day in 2018, Jaden speculated that “a lot” of his tweets would come true that year. It’s unclear which tweets he had an eye on, or whether any of them came true.
So, is Jaden Smith a genius? One of the foremost thinkers of our time? Or did he perhaps just spend a little too much time on his phone as a teenager? Maybe a little bit of each? Let us know your thoughts on this list in the comments and shout out any of your personal favorite Jaden Smith tweets from over the years!
