North Carolina man’s phone-tossing high-five selfie inspires Twitter craze

RALEIGH, N.C., Oct. 10 (UPI) — A North Carolina student unwittingly kicked off a Twitter craze when he successfully got his camera to take a mid-air picture of him high-fiving himself.

Seth Schneider posted a blurry-but-impressive photo to Twitter Saturday showing him slapping his hands together in the air while his phone captures the moment in a mirror while in mid-air from being tossed.

“Today is the proudest day of my life. I successfully took a picture of me high fiving myself,” the North Carolina State University student wrote.

Schneider’s accomplishment quickly spread across Twitter with more than 160,000 retweets and dozens of imitators — some more successful than others.

“I am not responsible for any broken phones,” Schneider wrote as a disclaimer in his Twitter bio.
