When There Is Rain In Karachi, There Is Rain On Twitter


Karachi is Pakistan’s biggest city having largest numbers of Twitter users from Pakistan. Mostly the topic which trends in Karachi becomes part of Pakistani trends on Twitter
Unlike Punjab and other parts of the country, Karachi doesn’t see rain many times in a year. But when there is rain in Karachi, there is actually rain on Twitter. Pakistani tweeters share their love, hate, news, photos of rain. 

Lets have a look on some of them. 

Rain & Fun + Love/Hate Tweets

And the Amount of shirtless uncle increases immensely during the rain!!!

Guys, I’ve reached a conclusion. Pakistani awaam doesn’t deserve rain. Not the one on twitter, at least.

Karachi vs Rest of Pakistan

The way Karachites get excited over rain, is actually very funny! 😀
— Raafay. (@GolGappaa) August 3, 2013

My TL ATM : awaam-e-Islamabad is confused whether to laugh or to get terrified. Karachittes are happy because RAIN. NO Lahore update
— Horror Gulla (@NectarGulla) August 3, 2013

Confused: Wish Karachiites for a good day of rain or bash them over it…

— Haseeb Aslam (@hasiib31) August 3, 2013

We have much more pressing issues on hand, such as the rain in Karachi and Karachiites inability to take pictures of it.
