University of Minnesota student goes viral with 'Bohemian Rhapsody' tweets

Nobody caught on during her three-plus months secretly writing the lyrics.
Publish date:

We don't know how many Twitter followers Hadie Mart had prior to going viral, but she's up to 26,000 and presumably still rising as media like us share her genius with the world. 

The University of Minnesota student has tweeted more than 7,000 times in her life, but her most recent .... tweets, dating back to May 7, were part of a calculated scheme in which the first word of each tweet written in succession reveals the lyrics to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody. 

It would take us almost as long as it took her to accomplish the feat just to take screen shots of each tweet, so thankfully someone on Twitter made a video of what she did and synced it to the song. 

If you want to see the content of her tweets in addition to the first words, here's a sampling of the first verse. Just check out her Twitter account if you want the full, 57-tweet version.
