Old Man Search: Twitter User @OldManSearch Appears To Be Googling (TWEETS)

First Posted: 05/20/11 08:59 AM ET   Updated: 07/20/11 06:12 AM ET

Imagine seeing every single one of your Grandpa's Google searches.

Well, Twitter user @oldmansearch is supposedly an 81-year-old man who thinks that Twitter is Google, and his "searches" are quickly turning him into a pretty popular tweeter.

From Twitter:

My dad is 81 years old. I'm teaching him how to use the internet. I told him twitter was how to search things on Google. These tweets are what he's searching.

Even though his account isn't even a month old, and has sent fewer than 50 tweets, he's amassed more than 65,000 followers.

Norman N. might be from Indianapolis, Ind., as his "searches" thus far have included "marion county surveyor Debra S. Jenkins pictures" (for those interested, here you go) as well as "weather indianapolis today."

We think that even the most computer illiterate person would give up after a month of "searching" with no results, but that doesn't mean that these tweets aren't hilarious. We hope you're able to find Shirley Tarnow, Norman N.!

Here are some of Norman N.'s best tweets. Don't forget to vote for your favorites!
