I guess respecting your elders is a notion of the past!

This hilarious and sweet Twitter feed follows Norman. N as he struggles to grasp social media. The Oldmansearch Twitter page was set up for Norman by his son, who explained to his father that Twitter was used as a search engine like Google. He encouraged his father to enter his search data and click share, thus enabling the entire world to read the private ponderings of an old man.

Norman’s tweets are precious, ranging from “cold toes” and “what does email cost?” to “Diane Sawyer swimsuit pictures.” His musings are so entertaining and genuine that I don’t even care if the account is fake. Although truthfully, I really hope Norman is out there somewhere wondering “how do I pronounce Juan?”
