BINOD became the most tweeted meme on Twitter India in 2020. Now this meme is literally nothing. Even the story behind this meme is so direct that it almost feels ridiculously funny as to why it became such a famous trend.
It started with YouTube channel Slayy Point posted a video. The title was “Why Indian Comments Section is garbage.” This included comment sections of various famous YouTube videos and channels. There was one particular comment that was included in every popular video. Some guy by the name Binod Tharu kept commenting “Binod” under these videos.
