Any list that includes "A, An or The" when sorting alphabetically.

Or these.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

The peeve is largely with 'The'. You get most of the way through a list then hit a large patch that starts back at the top.

Black pepper.

Well, this is really Mrs. oldkid's pet peeve.  I'm fine with it as long as it is really mild.  Like if I can see it but I can't taste it.

is it something about the taste of black pepper?  What about other spices?

We love most other spices: garlic, cumin, mustard, cayenne are widely used in our cooking.   Perhaps we don't care for pepper because it is so frequently overused.

Twitter Threads.

A tweet that starts "1 - ..." with "Show this thread" at the bottom of the post defeats the purpose of Twitter. You have that much to say, join a forum or open up a blog.
