Nadeshot turns $30m 100 Thieves compound into a massive racetrack

With so many people working from home at the moment, CEO of 100 Thieves, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag took the opportunity to turn their $30m Cash App office into a racetrack for an episode of “crash the compound” with predictably hilarious results.

In a bid to find out “who the fastest racers are at 100 Thieves” Nadeshot pits 5 team members head-to-head in the ultimate office-based race. Each racer represented an individual department, battling it out for the glory of being crowned the fastest competitor in the office.

While many people would think of an office-based racetrack as a simple, largely flat affair; Nadeshot took things over-the-top in typical 100 Thieves style to create the “Formula 100.”

Mixing go-karts, obstacle courses, and sporting challenges, the Formula 100 is about as crazy as office-based sports can get.

Each competitor represented a different sector of the 100 Thieves company.

Watching over the contest, Nadeshot goes through each of the competitors and their departments before reaching Logan from content, saying “he better not disappoint, because I’ll bust his ass if he does!”

Jackson was first up representing the ‘leadership’ team. Smashing through the course, Jackson managed to bust a few go-kart drifts and even ran over his own mic. Despite stopping to retrieve it, he still posted a “solid” time of 1:22 as the benchmark to beat.

JHB from ‘marketing’ went for a much more calm approach than Jackson, with Nadeshot ripping into his form saying he wasn’t “aggressive enough” and taunting him for not having a license yet. Eventually posting a time of 1:48, Nade wasn’t sure if the time would “hold up” to competitors.

Unfortunately for Kelsey from partnerships, “anything that can go wrong, did go wrong” during her run. Getting stuck on obstacles, smashing cones and accruing penalty points meant that she posted a time of 1:57 after a disastrous run.

“Killer instincts” weren’t enough for Cody

Cody showed off his “killer instincts” at the start of his run, before throwing it all away in the second half. Saying that his football shot “looked good” despite missing,

Nadeshot commented “nothing looked good about that” before Cody got stuck in the tunnel. Posting an eventual time of 2:48, it seems that Jackson was the one to beat.

Unfortunately, Logan was unable to beat Jackson’s time, but he was the closest one to it, posting a time of 1:31. Having watched the course “enough times to know it” Nadeshot then took to the track himself to try and knock Jackson off the top spot.

Sadly even Nadeshot himself couldn’t topple Jackson from the podium. Having scuffed his shot on the ‘HBR Park’ football section, Nade shouted “I put it in, I make the rules, put it in!” Sadly even that didn’t stop him from being slower than Jackson.

Announcing Jackson’s victory, Nade said “I’m the only person that’s going to be celebrating me today… Jackson, you win… Goddamnit!”

With 330 monthly active users and 145 million users daily, Twitter is one of the most popular social media apps out there. Whether you’re a casual user, business or even the US President, nobody can resist the allure of sharing snapshots of our thoughts within 260 characters.

There are many ways to show your personality through your Twitter account. Whether it be through a funny bio, pinned Tweet, interesting profile/cover photo or unique Twitter name, there are plenty of ways that you can make your Twitter account feel more like you.

However, one limitation that a lot of Twitter users note is the lack of fonts available. A lot of users find themselves stuck with Helvetica Neue, or even Arial if they’re really lucky.

The easiest way to get custom fonts on Twitter is through third party websites.

While there is no quick fix within the app to use special fonts on Twitter, it is possible to use special fonts through the use of third-party websites or apps.

What websites are best for using special fonts on Twitter?

As with any third-party website, you should always be careful that the website you’re visiting is safe and isn’t full of malware and other potential risks to your device. Be wary of websites with a lot of pop-ups and redirects.

No third-party website is completely risk-free, but here are some of the most popular ones used by Twitter users to get access to special fonts:

  • LingoJam
  • FontsforTwitter
  • Fontvilla

How to use special fonts on Twitter

While individual third-party font websites vary slightly from one another, they all essentially work the same.

However, for this tutorial, we will specifically focus on LingoJam.

A lot of these third party websites, like LingoJam, can be used on smartphones as well as desktops.
  1. Type the text you want to snazz up into LingoJam’s Fancy Text Generator, specifically in the box on the left-hand side that says ‘normal text goes here’.
  2. On the right hand side of the screen, you should see a box that displays your Tweet in a variety of different fonts. Scroll through this box to find the font you like the best.
  3. Highlight your Tweet in it’s chosen font, and then either click Ctrl/Command + C or simply right-click the text and select ‘copy’.
  4. Open Twitter and log into your account.
  5. Paste the text wherever you want to put it: this can be in your Bio – which you can access by clicking on the ‘Profile’ icon on the left-hand side, clicking the ‘Edit Profile’ button, and then pasting the text into the box that says ‘Bio’ before pressing the ‘Save’ button – or as a Tweet, wherein you can simply paste the text into the ‘What’s happening?’ box on Twitter before pressing the ‘Tweet’ button.

So, there you have it. Now you can give your Tweets that extra edge and be the envy of all your friends!
