Twitter has become a huge part of how information is shared and spread within the past few years, and as such, has not only helped propagate memes (Friday, Nigel Remixes, iconsftw), but also created some. However, these are harder to find the origin… So, I have decided to make a thread where we can try to find the origin for some twitter memes and the like.
Here are a few that I’m currently trying to find:
Rise and Grind
Is usually a trending topic at least once or twice a month, sometimes once a week. May be related to the Donnie Wahlberg song of the same name.
Miley Citrus, Kanye East, Lady Dada, etc…
While we do already have a thread for this, I do have a feeling that this was not just a passing fad. A few days ago, several of the terms were trending again and one of the Top Tweets contained several of the puns.
All I know about this one is that this hashtag is commonly used to pretty much say, “yeah, I know that there are worse things happening in the world, but this is a big problem for me”
That Awkward Moment When
I’ve seen this starting to spread to tumblr as well, but I see it more prominently on twitter.
