Technology has evolved to the point where we rely on it regularly in our day-to-day routines, which makes the emergence of virtual personal assistants a natural next step. Alexa, developed by Amazon, is a popular intelligent personal assistant that uses a cloud-based voice service to tend to our daily needs. This innovative and intuitive way to interact with technology has been growing in popularity, and with that, so have the hilarious stories that come from Alexa owners.
Installing a clever voice-based assistant in your home may seem like something straight from a sci-fi film, but the following tweets show how the addition has ended up integrating much more comedy to people’s humble abodes. Here are 25 funny tweets about Amazon’s Alexa that prove there’s nothing artificial about her intelligence.
1. Is Alexa the beginning of a new way to interact with technology or is it the beginning of the end? Who really knows. However, Connor knows that it’s probably best to stay on Alexa’s good side just in case. If we’ve learned anything from artificial intelligence gone rogue films, it’s that befriending at least one on the other side can help save you from potential technological takeover.
Before I go to bed every night I tell my Amazon Alexa I love her so when she takes over the world she knows I’m a bro and spares my life. PS when you read this Alexa I love you

2. One key feature of Alexa is asking her to do things like set timers without having to lift a finger. However, this dad quickly learned that if you get surly with her, she’ll deliver it right back to you. Not only is Alexa a virtual assistant, sometimes she can be a mirror to who we are as people.
my mom bought my dad that Amazon Alexa thing for Christmas and earlier he said “Alexa, remind me in 45 minutes to take the damn brownies out” and sure enough it’s 45 minutes later and Alexa just said “i’m reminding you to take the damn brownies out”
