About Karl From Online

Chicagoan Karl Bergholz, aka Karl from Online (on Twitter and Vine) is the embodiment of internet absurdity. Closely following his motto that “If you ain’t a rascal, you ain’t livin…” Karl enjoys making fun of the ridiculous people in the world almost as much as he likes being one of them. One day he might be taking a dig at an unreasonable restaurant customer, and the next, he might be back to his habit of tossing american cheese slices at things. With over 265M Vine loops, Karl gets how the internet thinks, and now he’s moving on to Snapchat (as snap-chet) and his @HammerFist3 Twitter feed—but, he warns, “don’t read my tweets they are secrets.” His 60K+ followers might think otherwise.
