It feels like Gen Z was born with their own social media logins and a smartphone in their tiny hands. For the boomers and post-war generations, things have been a bit more difficult. While some geriatrics outright reject modernity in favor of tradition, there are grandparents who embrace technology, both as a means of keeping in touch with their beloved families and complaining about, well, everything. Especially social media itself. And while people are free to use social media however they like, sometimes they can be pretty confused about how it works.

And fortunately, none of them are too political.
