Social media platform Orkut trending once again post Twitter outrage
Orkut was a website that was very well-liked by teens and young adults before social media became such a massive thing that dominated discourse worldwide and giants like Facebook and Twitter were created. Orkut Büyükkökten, a Turkish software developer who once worked at Google, created Orkut. It was introduced in 2004 and is a Google property. However, it was discontinued in June 2014 owing to a decline in users brought on by the success of other social networking sites, particularly Facebook and Instagram.
You might wonder, “Why a piece of history?” Orkut has really been trending on the microblogging website since Twitter’s drama with layoffs and a large number of staff quitting after Elon Musk’s purchase of the firm. Netizens have been nostalgically recalling the good old times when Orkut was well-liked because of its scraps, testimonials, and community postings features. Here are some memes that flourished on Twitter regarding this topic:
