The Power Of Desi People On Twitter

Desis are a unique kind of people. Wherever they go, they take their desiness with them. Their every action and overreaction 😉 truely depicts their desipan. That’s why when on the night of 29th January Ahsan (@aey) started tweeting with the hashtag #YouAreNotDesiIf every desi on twitter took part in it and within minutes it started trending not only in Pakistan but worldwide and that too on number 2. Under #YouAreNotDesiIf desis tweeted the characteristics which distinguish them from other people. It was a fun filled trend with tweets about desi language and terms, old goods(which technology has replaced now with new things), eating habits, political jokes, cricket and everything that’s exclusive to the desis.

You are not desi, Twitter worldwide trend.
Trend Duration: 40 mins, Top Rank: 2
