(ANTIMEDIA) — In the wake of seemingly unending allegations of sexual assault and threats of nuclear war, a tweet from a New York City musician quickly went viral on Friday night when he shared a simple story about making a friend.

According to the man known on Twitter as “High Class Filth,” the duo met last summer while playing Words With Friends, a popular app by Zynga. Since their first encounter, the pair has “played 300+ games together.”


The budding friendship between a young man from New York and an older woman from Florida was exactly what the Internet needed at the end of a long week. The tweet racked up more than 403,000 likes and 96,000 retweets just hours after the two met in person for the first time during the man’s first ever trip to the Sunshine State.

What sets this friendship apart from others is quickly apparent when you see his tweet.

The man, who appears to be in his 20s, tweeted that his friend was 80 years old when their friendship began, making this a friendship that spans generations, races, and many hundreds of miles.

According to a response to the original tweet on Twitter, the pair met at the Hilton Garden Inn in West Palm Beach, FL.

The Internet quickly responded to the meeting, with some retweets beginning to go viral themselves.

Others shared their own stories of meeting kindred spirits playing Words With Friends.

Some of the more popular responses on Twitter commented on the pair’s differences and the fact that technology was capable of bringing the unlikely pair together.

Many more included gifs.

As one Twitter user so eloquently put it:

“What a wonderful thing to see as shit goes sideways in the USA.”
