Tooter, the Desi Twitter sparks MEMES!

Heard about the Vocal for Local drive yet? Heard about India becoming Aatmanirbhar yet?

Well, as part of this “Swadeshi Andolan”, some Indians have gone as far as creating a desi version of Twitter, called Tooter!

And while the website went active around July, it caught the attention of netizens only recently.

Modelled after Twitter and hosting a similar theme of blue and white, Tooter is proudly boasting of being another feather in the ‘Made in India’ cap!

With a Conch Shell icon (read: shank), Tooter is aiming to become the desi alternative to the American micro-blogging giant, Twitter.

This Desi Twitter has some prominent personalities as its members: PM Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Smriti Irani, Virat Kohli and Abhishek Bachchan among others.

It also claims to support free speech and will let users exercise their right to express their opinions freely.

What’s more, like posts on Twitter are called Tweets, posts on Tooter are called Toots!

And if all this wasn’t enough, here’s what the About Page of Tooter states:

The About page for Tooter has this to say: “We believe that India should have a Swadeshi social network. Without one we are just a digital colony of the American Twitter India Company, no different than what we were under the British East India Company. Tooter is our Swadeshi Andolan 2.0. Join us in this Andolan. Join us!”

With Tooter coming into the limelight, memers went berserk with Memes!

Enter: Memes.

Tauba tauba, saara mood kharab kar diya.

My Eyes, My Eyes!

What is the fuss Russ?

Tooter Coder: *cries in Java*

Well well, even though the website went live around 4-5 months back, it became famous overnight now thanks to MEMES!

With their amazing ability to make people laugh, connect with millennials and lead the conversation on the internet, memes are definitely the next big thing!

Claims are Disputed but Memes are not!

You might have thought of rejecting the statements which are against your thoughts, whether these are about your emotions or choices. But did you ever imagine this could be done? 

Hmm….but the question is, HOW? Don’t worry about the ‘How’ till we have our source of humor, Donald Trump.

Lately, the microblogging site was flooded with hilarious memes which were disputing the claims. 

Trump was roasted for his Tweet “I won the Election” a week after Joe Biden was declared the President of the U.S. Twitter called this election differently and marked Trump’s  statement disputed. 

LoL…I told you, Trump can be the source of humor.

Now what? As usual, netizens got their new meme trend while using this caution to share their hilarious versions of “disputed claims” along with the caption “This claim is disputed by official sources”.

Well, trust me everything is going to be okay… Isn’t it so weird the way we console people without knowing the future events? 

Well, the future is obviously uncertain and that is why “This Claim is Disputed”.

Netizens won’t worry if everything is not going to be okay. Do you know why? 

Because, they have their OTTs to make them feel okay sometimes. Well, are you the one who wishes to watch one episode a day but ends up watching the whole season? If yes, then you literally have an escape.

2 minute mein Maggi bane ya naa bane, Kabir ko Naina se pyaar zarur ho jayega (B’wood fans unite)

It’s been long since we attended school/college. But what comes to your mind first when you hear the word “School or College”? 

For me, it’s exams and the promise I make to myself every sem.

Remember, the friend who says “Reaching in 5 minutes” and sees us after 1 hour. Haha.

When it comes to memes and netizens altogether, brands are always two steps ahead in giving their amusing take on the latest trends. 

Netizens love memes, memes love netizens and brands love netizens too, ultimately brands love memes.

Claims might be disputed, but memes can never be!

Spreading laughter, joy and brand messages – you name it and memes can do it!

Biden trumps Trump, Netizens celebrate with MEMES!

Joe Biden is the new President of America! America is celebrating, and so is the world! The Presidential Election was a tough call, as the result was largely dependent on the swinging states. 

However, Biden went on to win in the major swinging states which eventually sealed the victory. The victory brought about a general wave of joy and happiness in America, which resonated throughout the world.

Indians were thodaaa sa jyada happy because Kamala Harris has also won the election, and is now America’s Vice-President.

With this win, Kamala Harris became the first woman, and the first black and Asian American, to be vice-president-elect.

But, problems never cease to exist.

Donald Trump is unwilling to accept the results of the election. He started questioning the authenticity of the ballot counting right from the first day!

Donald Trump has always been a favourite among memers. With his latest statements, he is back on the trending list after his loss…

Trump took to Twitter soon after the final results of the elections to declare that he has won the election.

Trump has also alleged many states of voter fraud and argued that Biden was trying to misuse his power. However, he has failed to provide any evidence confirming his statements…

Just as you may have already expected, netizens treated us with some hilarious memes. The memes mostly centered around Donald Trump’s statements and his sad exit from the White House…

Kya palti mara re baba!

Paisa Wasool!

Don’t be scared

The desi memers also took their chance at roasting the “ex-President” on his defeat!

Sab tod denge!

Perfect!

Bohut Maza Aaya

Swiggy took a dig at Donald Trump’s tweet as well!

But honestly man, Thank you Donald Trump for the memes!

Memes have been a significant part of the US Presidential Elections. The rise in memes has been highly influential. Supporters of both the parties have used memes to run campaigns and promote their respective candidates. 

Memes have now become the face of digital marketing. No campaign is complete without the inclusion of memes.

Roachman Begins – A Travis Scott Meme Story!

Even for Indians, Halloween is a time for some really spooky parties and costumes. The one day of the year where the entire world just jumps into getting their most horrific look ready!

Just like the Met Gala, Halloween is also a time, when we see our favorite celebrities dressing up in unique dresses that we all go gaga about…

Remember Kevin Hart dressing up as his buddy Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson?

We be like…….

Just as most celebs are praised for their creative costume choices, there are some who don’t enjoy a Happy Halloween as well…

Rapper Travis Scott fell into the abyss of trolls with his Halloween costume. The “Sicko Mode” rapper chose to dress up as Batman this year.

Buuuuttt…. Ummm…

Unfortunately, yes.

The costume resembled the Batman Returns (1992) costume that Michael Keaton had popularized. However, Travis tried to have his own take on the costume by changing the color to brown, instead of black. Brown happens to be Travis Scott’s signature color!

Although Travis posted a series of clicks of him getting suited with the costume, the fans were definitely not very pleased with it.

Following this, dank memers stormed the internet and heavily trolled Travis for his new variation to the iconic Batman costume. 

Netizens showed no mercy for the rapper with their dank memes. Some started referring to him as a cockroach!

Yaar, dil se bura lagta hai.

The meal looks fab though

Fans created such hilarious memes that we couldn’t stop ROFL!!!

*drumrolls*

UNLEASH THE ROACH MEMES…

The last one is our favourite!

Picture ke saath toh match hi nahi huwa yeh!

Which is Which?

Not Accepted!

Death

The trolling didn’t go down well with Travis Scott… Just a day after Halloween, Travis Scott deactivated his account on Instagram. This led the fans to criticize the memers on being disrespectful.

However, the reason for him leaving Instagram is not quite clear. Some are of the opinion that he has left Instagram due to the continuous trolling, while others say that he is just taking a break from Instagram to work on his upcoming album!

The Roach memes have taken the Internet by a storm. This has just been another way of showing us how impactful memes are in our life! 

Want to know the other ways in which memes can create a stir?

Memes Establishing Political Discourse

Social Media has been continuously impacting popular culture unimaginably by engaging with users through various ways including memes.

 With the advent of technology in the current era, memes have gained prominence while performing exceptionally in all the fields, be it marketing, entertainment, news or even politics.

Memers who were making memes just for entertaining people, are surprised after knowing how memes can exceptionally change the culture. 

Le Memers (surprised with the impact of uproariously created memes):

Without further ado, let us try and understand the way memes are entering into the political scenario in India. The bewildering part is the memes’ reach to people who are least interested in politics, hence creating new audiences. 

Meanwhile apolitical people who come across political memes on social media after ignoring politics everywhere:

If you look convinced after looking at these memes, then you got my point. This is the influence of humor against oppression. 

This is how powerful memes are judiciously used in expressing one’s opinions without hurting the sentiments of people. 

Political humor, a mix of humor and user generated content, includes the opinions of masses and hence has a deeper impact on the audience. It is used as a tool of persuading the targeted audience without being suspected. Aahaaan!

The users of Web 2.0 are increasing uninterruptedly which is triggering participatory communication in a democratic country. 

The propaganda can be spread easily where the recipients are passive and users can understand and assess the memes which communicate information through humor and political campaigning.

Arey! Bhai , Shaanti rakho…

Let us explain through an example.

Do you remember #ZodiacTed which was viral during elections in 2016 in the U.S? Ummmm….. yes, that meme which portrayed Ted Cruz as a Zodiac killer. 

Meme pesh kiya jaye!

According to a survey by ‘Public Policy polling’, these memes influenced almost 40% voters in Florida. That’s unbelievable!

Have you ever wondered how to express your harsh opinions light-heartedly? 

Or are you scared that your views could hurt someone’s sentiments? If this is the case, then the discovery of memes is truly a blessing in disguise for you!

Every political action, policy or decision of the government is discussed on social media through trending hashtags and memes. 

These memes fill the discourse with humor and sarcasm which makes it easier to express the dissent in new age media. Whether it is demonetization or the implementation of GST, everything is being discussed through trending memes.

Influencing the youth to participate actively in the political scenarios of a country helps in spreading these trends quickly, thereby advancing the political commentary. 

Internet memes are an apt way to represent the dramatic scenes happening within the political culture. The information impacts the masses shortly.

All in all, it is evident that memes act as a tool for communicating political satire, opinions, influencing the voter’s choice and……marketing!

That’s right folks! To know more about all things meme, visit Youngun India

Borat 2 Memes go Viral Overnight…Very Nice!

Jagshemash, My Name Borat!

Sacha Baron Cohen is BACK, with another masterpiece, rightly named as Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan or simply Borat 2!

It has been more than 14 years since we saw the first Borat movie (let’s not get into the full name!). Borat 2, just like its predecessor, is a unique blend of satire and slapstick comedy, while having sentimental undertones! 

But what is Borat 2 all about? Let us explain…

Borat Sagdiyev, the infamous TV journalist from Kazakhstan, has been sent to the United States to deliver a gift to Vice President, Mike Pence. Meanwhile, Borat’s 15-year-daughter Tutar, ends up being on the trip to the US, and becomes the said gift for the US Vice President. 

This movie once again mocks gender discrimination, homophobia, anti-Semitism, and the American culture by being offensively hilarious!

Borat without controversies isn’t Borat at all! As soon as the movie was released, it stirred up several controversies.

The family members of Judith Dim Evans, a Holocaust survivor has filed a lawsuit against the film. The moon blood scene has been criticized for showing menstruation on screen.

However, the biggest controversy of all, is the cameo of Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani!

Sacha Baron Cohen works extremely hard to get things on camera. In one scene, Cohen interrupts Mike Pence’s Conservative Political Active Conference speech, dressed as Donald Trump. 

Now, in Rudy Giuliani’s cameo scene, the former Mayor of New York was not even aware that he was walking into a trap! The scene was shot in a guerrilla fashion. It shows Tutar interviewing Giuliani in a hotel. At the end of the interview, Giuliani invites Tutar to the bedroom and is shown lying on the bed, with his hands down his pants.

When Baron Cohen has given us such hilarious moments in this magnificent movie, how do you not expect us to give some humour back in return?

The release of Borat 2 gave the netizens yet another reason to start a meme-fest, and boy was it worth it!

Stay Safe people, Covid isn’t over!

Borat in Minecraft! Very Nice…

Sed Lyf!

Bohot maza aata tha fr!

Rudy, yeh tuney kya kiyaaa!

Koi logic hai is baat ka?

Borat’s profile!

Sus

The Kazakhstan government, who were extremely upset with the first Borat movie, (the Kazakh government had banned the movie and had taken out the ads objecting with the facts that the movie had made about the country), seemed to be quite happy with the new film.

In fact, the Kazakh tourism board saw this as an ideal opportunity to promote tourism. They have officially adopted the popular phrase “Very Nice” from the movie as the tourism slogan…

The movie is a meme in itself! Borat 2 is the perfect blend of everything, and so are the Borat 2 memes!

But how do these memes help movies like Borat 2?

Well, get in touch with Youngun India to know more about it!

Me to Memes: “Oo Ma Go Turu Lob”

I am assuming most of you must have heard the legendary names such as “Heer Ranjha”, “Romeo Juliet”, “Anarkali Salim”, “Bajirao Mastani”, and many more at some point in your life. 

Yes, these are the legendary couples whose true love stories from history are still dictated. In capitalist society, when life has evolved at a completely different pace, what do you think about True Love?

Well, Well! There might not be any particular definition of Love or say True Love as everyone might have their personal constructs of love or affection. 

But recently, after a Bengali Boy’s jibe on couples, people have started finding their true love sarcastically through trending memes. 

In his viral video, he is seen saying “Oo Ma Go Turu Lob” which means “Oh My God! True Love” in English and “हे भगवान ! सच्चा प्यार” in Hindi. 

Let’s have a look at the original video of little boy:

You might not understand the whole video, but I am damn sure you got the punch line of memes, “Oo ma go turu lob”. 

Haha! Isn’t it a very cute trend? 

Talking about cute, I’m assuming everyone has at least once in their life watched or heard about the popular show ‘Doraemon’. Remember Nobita or Suzuka ki jodi?

Well, any love story in today’s generation is incomplete without the love of “Nibba Nibbi”. Let the memes snoop into their Turu Lob stories to get a fair idea about love.

Mothers are dangerously savage, what say?

Have you ever calculated the love percentage? Haha! It’s really creepy. But it is creepier if you have believed it as well.

Does not matter how much relationship and breakups you have had, or how much was your love percentage, we all know the ultimate turu lob in India according to Indian parents: Arranged Marriage!

Meanwhile if your Kundali also gets matched: Sone pe Suhaga!

What do you think, how deep can love be? Can it urge you to make a tattoo of beloved on your body? 

Will it allow you to murder someone? Or will it make you do something that you could never do? 

Well, Munna bhaiya really had his ‘lob’ sorted (sarcasm intended).

Meanwhile Sweety:

Moving on, this defines my wardrobe more than my clothes themselves:

Dating apps are Turu Lob Light, Phone+Bed is Turu Lob Pro version!

I hope you must have found your true love under peer pressure now. LoL! 

However, I found something which I would hate in my life. What would I say then? “Oo Ma Go Turu Berekup”.

If you have TURU LOB with the latest meme trends for meme marketing, do not forget to check Youngun India

We have just one question: How far is December? 

Yaar, 2020 is really bringing so many twists and turns, it has become very difficult to keep up! Adding up to yet another twist is Instagram shaking hands with Messenger…

Well, Facebook has come up with a new update which will merge Instagram and Messenger. Through this new feature, you will be able to smoothly connect across both the platforms. 

Instagram users can directly reach out to the Messenger platform without the app and vice versa, without downloading the other app!

This merging of apps had been indicated earlier in 2019, when Mark Zuckerberg had announced his plans to integrate all social media messaging services. The merging of Instagram and Messenger may be followed by the incorporation of WhatsApp in this list!

The update has also replaced the DM icon of Instagram with the regular Messenger logo!

But but but….

The latest update has left a large number of netizens questioning the data privacy issues. Although Facebook has made it clear that the messaging service will have end-to-end encryption, netizens are still under a cloud of doubt!

However, not everyone expressed their concern and disappointment through angry rants. Some gifted us with what we’ve all been waiting for…

Twitter was flooded with several funny reactions and memes after Facebook launched the cross-messaging service. With people grabbing the opportunity to showcase their meme skills, we were invited to yet another Meme-Fest!
