Roaring Kitty lean in meme and tweet about GME stock going up.

Who says memes don't have the power to change the world?

Last night, GameStop stocks soared 77 percent to $30.97 a share thanks primarily to one meme posted by one guy.

That guy is Roaring Kitty, real name Keith Gill, who was primarily responsible for launching the /r/WallStreetBets short squeeze on GameStop stocks in 2021 (he was played by Paul Dano in the 2023 film about the mania, Dumb Money).

He had not posted on Twitter since June 2021 until last night when he posted the Leaning Forward In Chair diagram, which the meme stock crew appears to have taken as a sign to lock in.

That was enough to start the GameStonk mania all over again.

Since returning with the "lean in" meme, Kitty has also posted clips from movies in an apparent attempt to hype up his followers, though he hasn't said anything with actual words as of now.

It may seem like some other important piece of context is missing from the story, but the entirety of the recent GameStop stock surge really is just "Roaring Kitty posted again," which has frustrated people who study the market for a living and greatly amused meme stock enthusiasts online.
