“My grandfather is showing me the new mobile that he has bought and tells me that to unlock it you have to press the acorn button.” This is the tweet from @mmalikkka that has gone viral on the platform and is already on the way to 13,000 ‘likes’.
The old man’s funny reaction is due to the similarity that the symbol of the central button of the phone has with an acorn, hence his logic that to unlock the mobile you have to press the ‘acorn button’.
And it is that, for the most part, the elderly are in the process of adapting to the new emerging technologies in the 21st century, with which it is common that phrases like these are heard more than once that the youngest find them tender and fun.
Other funny reactions
In response to the tweet, there were other fun stories and experiences related to grandparents and new technologies, where many users shared their anecdotes.
That reminds me once my grandfather had to type an email address and directly typed “at”
