The most popular tweet during NFL Week 3, pregnant spider woman , is the latest example of a tweet that made people go, “Ohhhhhh.”
The tweet, which has over 2.5 million followers, was sent on Thursday by a Twitter user named @nh_nh that tweeted a link to a news article about pregnant women.
It was quickly retweeted more than 200 times and shared more than 3,000 times.
The tweet, however, did not say that the tweet was a joke.

The NFL is currently on vacation from its week of games, but a spokesperson for the league told the Associated Press on Thursday that it is not suspending its suspensions and that it will have its teams back on the field after the bye week.
The suspension of suspensions is part of an effort to reduce the number of “inappropriate tweets” sent during NFL games.
The Associated Press reached out to Twitter for comment but did not receive a response by press time.
The Twitter user who sent the tweet did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
