Maybe this Twitter user by the name of "Christopher" thought he'd snag a date when he tweeted about his preference for "girls who read books" over girls who are "on their phones."

His tweet DID catch the eyes of many smart, funny women on Twitter, but not for the reason he may have hoped. Christopher got dragged as many female tweeters were quick to point out the flaws in his argument.

Plus, he kept making it worse by responding to the replies.

As someone who reads constantly on the train on my Kindle for iPhone (ok sometimes it's Facebook—that counts as a book, right?), I can totally understand why this tweet rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

I hope this guy learned his lesson: don't mess with girls who read books. We might just destroy you with words.
