The oldest bagel shop in Montreal is almost 100. Forgive it if it jumps on the social media bandwagon a little late.

But there Fairmount Bagel was, a week ago, on Twitter. The iconic Mile End shop has since amassed over 3,000 followers, thanks in no small part to a deluge of cheeky, hysterical and strange tweets.

It all began on November 26.

Here's a shot at the bygone D.A.D.'s Bagels in N.D.G.

This.

THIS.

This hashtag game.

Jay Z would be proud.

Fairmount Bagel is quite the hip hop fan, evidently.

And finally, some epic shade at a famous Mile End rival.

Addendum, December 5: Fairmount Bagel's owner reports that the Twitter account is fake. (But does it matter?)

Addendum, December 15: The Fairmount Bagel Twitter account has been suspended.
