Eater reports that in an attempt to be “to be modern and relevant,” McDonald’s is giving Ronald a makeover. He only looks slightly less creepy now.

The WSJ reports that Ronald will not “get his own Twitter handle” (aww) but McDonald’s will post comments attributed to him using the hashtag #RonaldMcDonald.

“Selfies …here I come!” says Ronald in the press release.
