Feeling Down? Click the X refers to tweets that invite people who are feeling down to click on them, typically using an emoji as the object, therefore luring them into seeing the poster's replies to their own tweet. These may range from images meant to cheer people up to shitposts and trolling. The format, particularly the "Feeling Down? Click the Star" version, achieved virality on Twitter in late January 2023.


On October 26th, 2022, the Twitter[1] gimmick account @dailykandake posted the earliest discovered tweet containing a moon emoji surrounded by stars, captioned, "feeling down? click on the moon." Upon opening the thread, a user would see a collection of images of Genshin Impact character Candace meant to cheer them up (tweet and top reply shown below). The tweet received over 240 retweets and 1,400 likes in three months.
