Burger King on 5th: Best Fast Food Twitter Account in Ohio?

Posted by cmh gourmand on April 20, 2017

In a world overloaded with social media and in particular generic, mundane and uninspired corporate tweets managed by disconnected third parties churning out content from soulless cubicles, there is a refreshing ray of sublime sunshine, Burger King on 5th. If you are a twitter user, follow @BK5th. If you are not click on the link below and start reading.

Burger King on 5th

I am displaying a few choice tweets below.

If you’re looking for a great place to park and “make out”, the back of our lot is perfect. Buy something first though.

reviewing security footage for the past month; a rusty chevy cavalier parks in back of our lot for 30min between 2-5 am every night. Creepy.

Apparently @SUBWAY chicken is only 50% chicken. Ours is probably 100% but most importantly comes in french fry format, as God intended.

If you’re getting hammered in Columbus and it’s too late to go to @LateNightSlice just drink for a couple more hours then it’s #BKBreakfast

I wondered if this content was legitimate, and hoped it was not some type of fake account. In the spirit of investigative journalism I visited the Burger King on 5th to dig deeper into the story by showing them this tweet I received:

Show this tweet to the employee at the register and they’ll get you a special offer…if they’re in a good mood.

The response to my query was unenthusiastic. If you recall the show Different Strokes, then the phrase “what you talkin’ about Willis” would most equate the look I received back. So we may never know, is this the real deal from a cutting edge local fast food franchisee or the work of some prankster? In an age of #Fakenews or #QuestionableTweets who knows?

If this has whetted your appetite for questionable food related social media, you may be pleased to know there is more.
