There are a bunch of reasons why someone’s Instagram account might go viral. Maybe you’re a photographer with a quirky new idea. Or a cartoonist with lots of funny sketches. Perhaps you’ve got yourself an adorable new pet that you’ve been showing off to the world.
But some Instagram accounts go viral simply because they’re just plain nice.
Lauren Skell from Chichester, England tweeted on Sunday about the Instagram account of an elderly man she knows called Geoffrey Walker. Or perhaps we should call him, the sweetest man on Instagram.
This old man I know always posts insta’s of his wife and they’re so sweet bless him😂😭 pic.twitter.com/CiyaWG8pa7

His account is a mixture of quotes, pictures of his family, and — most notably — heartwarmingly captioned photos of his wife, Pauline.
