Ryan Reynolds and Chrissy Teigen might be the king and queen of Twitter but even the royals have to respect their elders. Myrna Tellingheusen has been tweeting since 2015, and her posts perfectly poke fun at the stereotypes surrounding old folks. So far, little is known about Myrna and her identity is a complete mystery. Some of her followers want to believe the old lady is real, while others think she’s nothing more than a fictional character. In hopes of finding out something about this internet persona, we’ve invited her for a little chat.
“I exist in a modular home park in Rainbow, California, a sleepy little town just north of San Diego, and just south of Temecula,” Myrna told Bored Panda. “My story is long as fascinating. However, the short version of this story is I want to make social media fun.”
“There is too much acrimony in the world right now, and people need to laugh at themselves.”
But regardless of who’s behind Myrna’s account, it doesn’t make her tweets any less hilarious. And maybe that’s the point. Maybe it’s your grandma, maybe it’s a thirty-something literature professor. The mysteries behind Myrna only add more charm to her Twitter game. Scroll down to read her thought on holding grudges, hard-boiled eggs, and other serious topics. Oh, and don’t forget to upvote your faves.
