Fun Twitter account that does nothing except copy and paste real Meltzer quotes from the '90s, to either show how ridiculously wrong he proved to be or just for interesting historical context or because the item is so stupid.  I tried to paste some examples but it won't let me so you'll have to follow yourself.

This is the only Twitter account I follow-https://twitter.com/seinfeldtoday

Here's one of the gems:

Modern Seinfeld ‏@SeinfeldToday Jul 8 When George falls for a Twitter bot, Kramer claims he once Catfished himself. J:How’s that even possible? K:Oh I’m good Jerry. I’m real good

I'm not on Twitter, but I'd like to read these. Can't one of you shut-ins figure out a way to copy them here?

I don't know if this will work, but if it doesn't you just log in to your Twitter account and type in Meltzer in the '90s.

Sunny told Mankind "I won't bite." Pillman came back with "But she certainly will swallow." Jim Ross quickly threw in "Her pride." [5/97]

The only thing I legit laughed at. What a bore...

I don't see it as a parody and more about trying to fit the quotes into context or the mindset of the era.

Agreed, I haven't seen too many questionable quotes at all.

Someone I follow retweeted this account yesterday and I went and read some of the tweets. There are the odd funny ones, knowing what we know now, but they are few and far between. The most amazing thing is finding Dave Meltzer sentences that are 140 characters or less.
