What might become the next big trend on social media is hard to gauge, and more often than not it seems random names of individuals are giving birth to viral trends. Currently, it’s name of girl ‘Shweta’ that is got everyone talking online.
If 2020 immortalised Binod, Shweta is giving a stiff competition to him in 2021. From jokes to memes and spoof videos, desi internet is abuzz with her name. So much so, it trended ahead of even #IPLAuction or #PetrolPriceHike on Twitter, becoming the top trend on Indian Twitter at one point with thousands of tweets.
Why is Shweta trending?
In case you’re wondering who is Shweta or why she’s going viral, the answer to that is a a leaked Zoom call of a online class where a girl named Shweta forgot to mute her mic. While that is one gaffe all of us have committed in the course of last year, it was her private discussion with a friend that went public and got people’s attention online.
In the video going viral, the girl continues to share some private details of a boy, who had asked her to keep it a secret. Fellow students try to warn her that her mic is on, but in vain.
“Usne ye apne best friend ko bhi nahi bataya (He didn’t even say it to his best friend),” Shweta is heard saying at one point. To which, a fellow student quipped: “Ab ye 111 logo ko pata chal gaya hai (Now, 111 people have heard of it).”
