There is a quirky trend that has taken over Twitter, and we’re having a whole of fun with it. Started by Twitter user @aaliznat, who loves her nose pins, as a call-out to others who share her passion for the trinket, there are quite a few lovers of the traditional nath and they’re wholeheartedly joining in the hashtag brigade. “People, post your amazing nose studs and rings under the hashtag #NosepinTwitter from now, please. Issued in public interest. Please RT,” Tanzila (@aaliznat) had tweeted.
Soon, there were thousands of tweets in response. While most of the responses were from women, there were a couple of men who joined in the fun as well, and – of course – when something trends, then the meme-sters can’t be far behind, which is what happened here as well. Talking to indianexpress.com, Tanzila said,” I love nose pins and I thought some of my friends would be kind enough to post some pictures and we will have fun looking at pretty faces.” She added that the amount of beauty and colour she got on Twitter was something she hadn’t envisaged.
Not only that, Bollywood celebrities contributed to the photo trend as well. Model and actor Chitrangda Singh shared two photos of herself sporting the nose pin, with the caption: “ing thiss trend .. My contribution to
#NosePinTwitter #beautiful #indianjewellery celebrate the feminine .”
Here’s the tweet that started it all.
