Google had a great response to this viral tweet of a grandma being nice to Google
This tweet from Ben Eckersley, a 25-year-old from Wigan, England, went viral over the past week. Its humor is pretty self-explanatory: It shows his grandma being super polite to Google's search engine, asking it to translate a set of Roman numerals while adding "please" and "thank you" directly into the query.
Omg opened my Nan's laptop and when she's googled something she's put 'please' and 'thank you'. I can't ?????? pic.twitter.com/hiy2tecBjU- Ben (@Push10Ben) June 9, 2016
So my Nan is now on Lil' Wayne's Facebook page. I'm done. I'm out. *drops mic*- Ben (@Push10Ben) June 17, 2016
Google finally responded to the tweet on Wednesday via its UK account:
Dearest Ben's Nan.- Google UK (@GoogleUK) June 15, 2016
Hope you're well.
In a world of billions of Searches, yours made us smile.
Oh, and it's 1998.
Props to Google for being as polite as Ben's grandmother was in this situation. It's also refreshing to see people being so polite on Twitter.
