    Global financial markets are crashing following a stock market meltdown in China and even those not following news know that something is wrong if #BlackMonday hashtag is one of top trends on Twitter.

    Although for many keeping calm takes increasingly big effort, Twitter users might offer a much needed source of relative but bittersweet comfort or a tongue-in-cheek take on harsh reality.

    But there is no shortage of doomsayers painting a picture of an impending financial apocalypse.

    Some attempt to master the intricate art of irony.

    Others just say it like it is.
