Autism Test Pattern Recognition Parodies or Autism Test Twitter Meme refers to a series of parody memes on Twitter where a pattern of shapes and colors resembling something or someone from a fandom that autistic people might stereotypically enjoy is shown under the caption "autism test," implying if you recognize the property by the image, you have autism. The trend became popularized on Twitter in late May 2023, carrying on into June. It is similar to the otaku test meme.


On May 28th, 2023, Twitter[1] user @sspacedstars posted an image of a star on top of a green square next to an image of a blue rectangle with a small yellow square on top of it, writing, "autism test." The image is meant to resemble Tweek and Craig from South Park. The post gained over 820 likes in roughly two weeks (shown below).
