    Engstrom was inspired by other popular parody Twitter accounts such as Modern Seinfeld and Seinfeld 2000.

    Sharon joins an "animal activist" group online. She is surprised they are not as politically active as she thought but are simply furries.

    "On top of this, my parents and sister recently went to Thailand and I was watching Kath & Kim reruns during my lunch break and found myself laughing at the idea of the whole cast in Thailand [for an] episode," he said. "I decided to make the account and work out simple tweetable plot lines for each of the characters."

    The reaction online has been "super positive" and Engstrom is allowing the public to contribute ideas on "Submission Sundays".

    Kim tries out listening to podcasts while at the gym. She tries out Serial but ends up never leaving the change rooms out of paranoia.

    There's now a Facebook page dedicated to modern Kath and Kim too – and Engstrom is writing up full episodes for us all to enjoy.

    "I don't fuck around when I commit to a project," he said.
