First, what are memes?
It's surprising you've heard a lot about memes, you've seen them on social media, but you just don't know what they really are.
According to Dictionary.com, a meme is an image, video, piece of text, etc, typically humorous in nature, that is copied and spread rapidly by internet users, often with slight variations.
Wikipedia puts it more directly as follows; A meme is an idea, behaviour or style that spreads by means of imitation from person to person within a culture and often carries symbolic meaning representing a particular phenomenon or theme.
The common keywords in these definitions are - the word "spread" and "copy or imitate". Memes are known for what they are because they easily become widely used, or viral on the internet. The name, meme, was derived from mimick, or the Greek word, mimema, which both means "to imitate".
This, therefore, gives us a fuller understanding of the word, meme, to mean any imitation of someone, something, or somewhere that is a visual form, that is picture, text, video, that is slightly altered to evoke some emotions, which makes it go viral on the internet. It is not important that you understand what memes are, in their broad perspective that includes almost anything or everything derived from some popular visuals, that is capable of going viral or spreading through the internet and social media.
People derive a lot of pleasure from the internet, some just go to social media to get some laugh and forget some of their sorrows. People learn from the internet, some just go to social media to cause arguments or small stirs, otherwise known as "Violence". Violence is particularly used on Twitter where people have conversations that are fiercely violent, in a bid to put the other person into submission.
Twitter is also notorious for the term "dragging", where a popular figure is attacked by many other Twitter users in a way that suggests that they want the victim to relinquish their action and openly surrender. You now get a feel of how much violence is on Twitter, right?
That's on a lighter note. I really love Twitter so much. So you should do well to follow my handle after reading through this.
