Mansoor Bashir, a law student from Islamabad, Pakistan became an Internet celebrity after he started tweeting pictures of old Mughal paintings with witty captions, more relevant to the modern age.
Bashir, who goes by the name Buffetkhor on Twitter, posts on the social media website under the handle @MyDixonCider. His series of tweets with Mughal paintings might be inspired by another Twitter handle called @WtfRenaissance, a profile that posts Renaissance pictures with witty captions relevant to the modern era.
