But the social media blitz was a modern-day spin-off of the 1971 children's classic "The Monster at the End of This Book: Starring Lovable, Furry Old Grover."


It began with this post:

The account continued to tweet lines from the handle, totaling 29 lines in all:

[embedtweet id="296695891165851648"]

[embedtweet id="296696345803247616"]

It might have been one of the most exciting things on Twitter today, but this tweet pretty much sums it up:
