Best Thing Twitter's Ever Done: A Rihanna/Lupita Nyong'o Man-Scamming Heist Film

#BLACKGIRLMAGIC unite for the fiercest heist film in cinematic herstory!

While Twitter's popularity has been on a steady decline, its ability to influence may have just peaked.

A photo of serial sartorial slayers Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o at Paris Fashion Week two seasons ago had the internet collectively clutching its pearls.

#Facts. And that's when Twitter got to talkin'.

Once Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o co-signed the idea, that little stone rolled all the way down the digital hill, acquiring all the necessary moss it needed to become, dare we hope, reality.

Next thing you know, Issa Rae of HBO's Insecure, goddess among us Ava DuVernay, and finally Rihanna--always late to the party but some how always on time--were all on-board, as well as some industry folks needed to turn on the lights.

Of course, RiRi, that noted budding actress, has a role in the other greatest female heist film of all time, Ocean's 8, but let's be honest: Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o as man-scamming besties [insert more plot detail with a hint of social commentary here] in a film written by Issa Rae and directed by Ava DuVernay already sounds like it won all the Golden Globes, the Oscars, the Peabodys, and the Nobel Fucking Peace Prize.

Thanks, Twitter!
