There is a science to selfies. Regardless of whether you're camera shy, anyone who regularly treads the waters of social media knows the difference an angle can make. A well curated selfie can illuminate cheekbones and symmetry, while an unflattering candid photo brings out a more existential vision of our human fleshbags. In a perfect world, we'd embrace all of the bizarre angles our body can make. Have you ever taken an ant's eye view photo from the floor?! It's wild, it transforms your body into the Eiffel Tower (but with less tourists on top of you, unless that's what you're into). In reality, we're not always prepared to look at ourselves.
So, it's no surprise that Twitter is currently riffing on that moment when you accidentally open your front camera.
We've all been there - innocently trying to photograph a flower when BAM, we're staring down the barrel of our own chin.
