The Internet is a vast, weird and sometimes wonderful place. You could learn a new language or make friends with someone thousands of miles away from you in real life. The possibilities are endless.
Or you could post pictures of supermodel Chrissy Teigen and the Iron Sheik hanging out together after the ESPY Awards this week, at least assuming by the hashtags involved. Given how each member of the photo is their own sort of Twitter icon, this picture deserves a blue verified check mark of its own to mark the significance.
And who would have thought years ago when Sheikie was waging his fictional war against Hulk Hogan and America that he’d one day be a 140-character legend?
