Old Man Search: Punking an 81-Year-Old on Twitter?
@oldmansearch: Telling an 81-Year-Old that Twitter is Search
One mischievous netizen told his 81-year-old father that Twitter was how you searched for things on the internet. The result: @oldmansearch.
Cue the retweets as @oldmansearch enters queries such as "Night Blindness", "John Stewart Jew" and "National Geographic Dinosaur Truth". Some users have been actually answering his questions.
Sorry, but We Call BS on Old Man Search
We gotta call this one a hoax. Surely anybody would notice, after over 40 searches, that no results present themselves. This just rings false, especially the generic "racist old man" content. We just don't believe that this is real, funny though it is.
Old Man Search would be more believable if presented as the dad's web-search history.
