Dad hilariously re-creates daughter's sexy selfies

Like most fathers would be, Chris "Burr" Martin was taken aback when he saw that comment posted in response to one of his 19-year-old daughter Cassie's sexy selfies on her Instagram account.

The move comes as Twitter's efforts to increase its user base and engagement have been sputtering, raising questions about its growth trend.

"Over the past decade, the tweet has evolved from a simple 140-character text message to a rich canvas for creative expression featuring photos, videos, hashtags, Vines and more," Twitter product manager Todd Sherman said in a statement.

"So, you can already do a lot in a tweet, but we want you to be able to do even more."
