Old-School #FF: Modern Seinfeld

Twitter is a great source to receive quick news updates as they happen; miserable people now have a way to let everyone know how much they hate Mondays; while some go to the social media site in hopes of getting a retweet from their favorite celebrity.

Mostly, I go to Twitter to get a few laughs - whether it be from comedians tweeting jokes, or a parody account.

Now, Twitter has done us the service of reviving the greatest sitcom of all time - Seinfeld. The account is known as Modern Seinfeld, with @seinfeldtoday as its handle. The bio poses the question: “what if Seinfied were still on the air?”

Such a simple question, but a great one nonetheless. What kind of hijinks could Jerry, George, Kramer, Elaine, and... Newman get into in this modern age? The minds behind the hilarious account, Jack Moore (@BuzzFeedJack) and Josh Gondelman (@joshgondelman), cleverly pose potential situations the gang might find themselves in.

The plots often have to do with current events, like the Manti T'eo scandal:

Technology has come a long way since the show originally aired in the mid-90s. Instead of Jerry's cordless house phone with the giant antenna, they would probably all have iPhones, now.

Jerry used to have a bulky desktop computer lurking in the background of his apartment. Now there's something called Wifi.

It would be interesting to see how Jerry's fashion evolved from the white sneakers to the trends of today.

Although, we can't say we agree with George's view on social media...
