This morning Amazon announced that it would be buying Whole Foods in a $13.7 billion deal. Naturally, people took to Twitter to react to the huge buy. Here are some of the highlights:

I, too, spend $13.7 billion at Whole Foods.— Slade Sohmer (@Slade) June 16, 2017
It is now possible to live your entire life while only buying products from Jeff Bezos— Christopher Mims (@mims) June 16, 2017
Whole Foods, who packs a month?s supply of food in a single grocery bag was bought by Amazon, who ships a paper clip in a refrigerator box.— Marie Connor (@thistallawkgirl) June 16, 2017
Amazon is buying Whole Foods Market for $13.7B. Since that's more than $25, Amazon will get it with Free Two-Day Shipping, too.— Fard Muhammad?! (@fardmuhammad) June 16, 2017
Not sure how Whole Foods is only worth 13.7B when that's how much it costs to get your weekly groceries there.— LG (@LGhail) June 16, 2017

Now if Whole Foods prices became Amazon prices, I would be thrilled. If not, leave me alone at Trader Joe's.— Vanessa (@Raizin_Brand) June 16, 2017
