Because Jerry Seinfeld is "a cutting edge technology guy," Wired Magazine asked him to weigh in on some of the most pressing tech-etiquette questions of the modern era for its July issue. The original father of Normcore and staunch critic of smartphones remains a man of the '90s era, and his tech advice is appropriately curmudgeonly: Tweeting on ambien is OK, cause what could go wrong?, it's cool to 'like' Facebook posts about death, and don't spy on your neighbor with a drone for feeding your cats, because your neighbor is clearly doing you a favor, you jerk.

Outside of his stand-up, the video is the closest fans will ever get to hear Jerry kvetching about the ills of technology in real life (don't get Seinfeld started about that "Modern Seinfeld" Twitter account, which is a painful subject). After all, we now abide by the mandate of The Twitter, our bird simulacrum, that "we also must drop a small series of daily turds upon the Earth."
