Gen Y Remembers Their First Social Media Platform ‘Orkut’, Memes Take Twitter By Storm
As people still somehow remain locked inside their houses, they are reminiscing things from their past. Generation Y had a field day on Twitter when one Twitter user Shubhangi Chopra (@shonupie) asked on the micro-blogging platform, “Who all used Orkut here?” Twitter was taken over by the overwhelmed 90s kids who shared their first social media networking experience. Walking down the memory lane before Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat was the status quo, netizens shared memes to express their nostalgia.
Chopra's tweet got more than 600 retweets and 8K likes, she said, her elder sister created the Orkut account for her.

Orkut was named after its creator Orkut Büyükkökten, a Turkish engineer working with Google at the time. Launched in 2004, the platform gained popularity in 2007-08, especially in Brazil and India. In 2014, the Google-owned website announced it's shutting down.
