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.
