A video on how to peel a boiled egg has taken Twitter by storm. Posted on Sunday, the egg peeling hack has been receiving a lot of attention on the microblogging platform. The video, less than 10 seconds long, displays a technique that would allow people to peel a boiled egg cleanly and within seconds.
In the video, a person is seen placing a boiled egg inside a glass and filling the glass with cold water. The glass is then shaken firmly for a few seconds before the egg is taken out. On squeezing the egg gently, its shell slips right off.

It has also sparked a debate about whether or not the trick actually works. A number of people who tried the trick at home reported that it did not work for them.

This isn't the only kitchen hack that has left Twitter impressed. In June last year, a garlic peeling hack had gone massively viral online.
