If you've had the misfortune of interacting with the many, shall we say, characters on dating apps, then you've probably been on the receiving end of a "send nudes" text and/or DM. 

It's a bizarrely common request considering that in most of these cases, the asker is pretty much a stranger. Now, all of a sudden, they want to see highly personal images of your bare physique? 

Understandably, not everyone is into the idea of sending nudes, regardless of relationship status. Fortunately, Twitter is here to save the day with an option that's totally SFW.

If you've attempted to hit the dating scene at some point in the past few years, you likely know a thing or two about the classic "send nudes" message.

Apparently, it's a thing that complete strangers (often men to women) like to ask of other complete strangers when they're just getting to know each other. 

The phrase has taken on a life of its own and has become a major part of internet culture, for better or worse. Case in point: 

I mean, how do people have this much time on their hands??

Of course, not everyone is into sending naked photos of themselves to other people, whether they know them well or not. 

And for those people, rejoice! Because today is your lucky day. 

Twitter has gifted the world with a perfectly acceptable alternative to sending nudes: #SendNewts.

That's right, for all the herpetology enthusiasts out there, the #SendNewts hashtag is a literal gold mine. 

It's basically the blessing we didn't know we needed.

#SendNewts manages to be both educational and downright hilarious.

One person turned the pun into a pun and, honestly, bravo. 

Another Twitter user wrote a full-on poem, and it's actually a masterpiece.

Someone delivered this important PSA reminding folks to "avoid handling amphibians with bare hands to protect them from chemicals" that can come from human skin. Fascinating!

In conclusion, herpetology rules and #SendNewts is officially the only way to respond to all #SendNudes requests for the remainder of eternity.
