The internet is full of free financial advice, and while there is a big audience for that, sometimes netizens turn their backs on insincere, self-help tips.

Earlier this month, when Steve Adcock, a finance guru and part-time motivational speaker, dished out advice about leading a successful life, netizens turned his tweet into a meme.

On August 1, Adcock who goes by the Twitter name Steve Millionaire Habits (@SteveOnSpeed), tweeted to his over 1 lakh followers, “By age 30, you should have a group of friends that talk business, money, and fitness, not politics and pop culture.”

While his tweet gathered 35,000 likes, it also prompted a host of other tweets that started with “By age 30”. Responding to Adcock’s post, a Twitter user wrote, “By age 30, you should know that people who discuss money, business, and fitness can also discuss pop culture and politics. These topics are not mutually exclusive. Alternatively: by age 30, you should know it’s okay to have multiple friend groups that discuss different topics.”


Another person simply wrote, “By the age of 30 stop judging others”. Soon the tweet format of “By the age of 30” encapsulated everything from sincere advice to movie plots.
