Twitter users are sharing some of the things that make them angry. "Text me a one-word response after I send you a long heart-felt text msg", "Call my phone, ask if I'm sleep, I say yes and you keep talking anyway" and "disturb me when I'm sleeping" are all ways to make a Twitter user mad according to the tweets being spread this morning containing the "howtomakememad" hashtag.
