What's Your Job on the Leftist Commune? refers to a trend originating on Twitter where users hypothesize on what their job might be on a "leftist commune" following a left-wing revolution. The trend first began in late 2020, and inspired a number of optimistic replies to the tweet where users shared what their ideal jobwouldbe, spreading as a trend over the course of the year. The trend inspired criticism for its general message about leftist revolution and its over-optimism and inspired memes comparing the leftist commune to historical examples of communist societies, shutting down ideas of having ideal jobs with more labor intensive jobs.
On December 20th, 2020, now-suspended Twitter user @_jadeisabelle made a post reading, "whats your job on the leftist commune?? im gonna be leading discussion on theory some days, making clothes from scraps other days, and making lattes whenever needed" (shown below).
The tweet inspired many others to optimistically share what their job might be at the leftist commune, mainly in reply to the original tweet (examples shown below).
