It is difficult to predict what will become the next big thing on social media, and it seems more often than not that random names of people are giving birth to viral trends. Currently, it’s a girl’s name ‘Shweta’ that has everybody talking online.
If Binod was immortalized in 2020, Shweta will send him a tough competition in 2021. The Internet is abuzz with her name, from jokes to memes and parody videos. So much so, with thousands of tweets, it trended ahead of #IPLAuction or #PetrolPriceHike on Twitter, becoming the top trend on Indian Twitter at one point.
Why is Shweta trending?
If you’re wondering who Shweta is or why she’s going viral, the reason is an online class leaked Zoom call where a girl named Shweta failed to mute her microphone. While that is one gaffe that all of us have made over the past year, it was her private talk with a friend that went viral and got the attention of people online.
The girl proceeds to share some private information of a boy in the video going viral who had asked her to keep it a secret. Student colleagues attempt to warn her that her mic is on, but in vain.
Shweta is heard saying at one point, “Usne ye apne best friend ko bhi nahi bataya (He didn’t even say it to his best friend).” “To which, a fellow student joked: “Ab ye 111 logo ko pata chal Gaya hai (111 people have heard of it now).
Not only did the audio of the zoom call go viral from YouTube to Instagram on social media sites, it also sparked a hilarious online meme-fest. Desi users began posting memes on Twitter to poke fun at the girl’s gaffe, adding that any Zoom call is always a Shweta who inadvertently gives out all the secrets.
Netizens post memes from Bollywood references to ‘Dude with the Tag’ to accurately explain the embarrassing situation.
