After Pawri ho ri hai, the phrase “Shweta, your mic is on” is the next big social media trend. The hashtag #Shweta appeared on Twitter within hours after recording a conversation between a woman of the same name, and her friend Radhika went viral on a microblogging site.
If there wasn’t enough talk about the caution of video conferencing at this time of the pandemic, Twitter added another one to the history books after one of the most cringe-loaded gossip sessions was broadcast live by a young woman who didn’t know her microphone was on.
You can hear how Shweta, who forgot to turn off or mute the microphone during a conversation with Microsoft Teams with her colleagues, shared intimate details about the man with her boyfriend. The discussion lasted nearly three minutes while other participants tried to tell Shweta, “your mic is on.” One of her colleagues also jokes that Shweta revealed her secrets to 111 people.
Soon, Twitter users started sharing memes, and #Shweta became one of the top social media trends.
Never share your OTP, PIN and SECRET with anyone. Not with shweta also….#Shweta
