An Oklahoma college student brought her grandfather some Twitter fame after she tweeted a picture of him appearing to be sadly eating a burger.

According to Kelsey Harmon, she and her five other cousins were invited to dinner by their grandfather Wednesday, but only she showed up.

The Northeastern State University student said her grandfather, whom she calls Papaw, made 12 burgers for his six grandkids.

The tweet gained over 70,000 retweets in less than 24 hours.

The story Harmon tweeted gained so much traction it made it to Twitter's "moments" page, which tracks trending tweets and compiles them into a feed.

The feed pulls the best tweets from the initial moment.

According to BuzzFeed, some people on Twitter found Brock Harmon, one of Kelsey Harmon's cousins, and one of Pawpaw's grandchildren.

It looks like Twitter went so far as to find a 2014 tweet in which Brock said he was hungry.

According to Kelsey Harmon, the spread of her tweet led to death threats for her cousins.

 

 

But Brock Harmon, perhaps after getting so many Twitter notifications, tweeted that he went to Papaw's burger dinner and that his grandfather forgave him.
