@SeinfeldToday Twitter Parody Puts Modern Spin on Dated Sitcom SHARE: Tweet And whaaaat’s the deal with Twitters?! One only needs to take one look at the cast’s outfits on reruns of Seinfeld to see how dated the show looks when it’s rebroadcast in syndication. But what’s truly amazing about re-watching the show nearly 15 years after its finale is how many plots could never have approached the level of comedy they achieved had modern technology existed then. On the other hand, such a premise has given life to a brilliant new Twitter account, @SeinfeldToday, which imagines new episodes given all the trappings of smartphones, Skype, Twitter, Facebook and all the other nonsense we think we need. Much like @FakeLouieEps, this is spot-on stuff. Here are some examples: Jerry gets in a fight in the Trader Joes line. George’s Netflix thinks he’s gay. Elaine has to get One Direction tickets for her boss’s kid. — Modern Seinfeld (@SeinfeldToday) December 10, 2012 Jerry joins Twitter only to find that a Jerry parody account has 50k followers.
