You might be amazed to know or knowing that on 7th August’2020 even the Paytm which is considered as one of the India’s largest online payment platforms changed the name of its Twitter account to ‘Binod’. ‘Binod’ has been trending on social media platforms like Twitter, Netflix, Amazon and YouTube and what not from the past few weeks.
So basically it all started when the Abhyudaya and Gautami who are the youtubers of their channel Slayy Point posted a funny video on their channel where they were looking after the comments section of their videos. The video named as “Why Indian Comments Section is Garbage (BINOD)”, the YouTuber noted that a user named Binod Tharu who posted his first name as a comment and they were really stacked to see it. The video was narrated very funnily where they were really confused to know that how come someone type his own name as the comment even after watching a whole video.

Well if you are seeing this term and smiling that means even you have tried right? Yeah truly speaking even I tried making it and to god’s grace mine was fantastic. I am sharing a pic of it as well. I even searched this term over google trends and found it to be one of the most trending term from the month of May of course after the great coronavirus. Instagram, facebook, twitter not even a single platform is left to have a sip of the very famous dalgona coffee. It all just began with a Tiktok trend and eventually exploded all over the internet sites as the It-Drink of the moment.
- Mix sugar, coffee, and a teaspoon of warm water in a bowl. You can use a hand mixer or a whisk and vigorously mix it until the mixture turns to be a smooth and shiny one and then continue whisking until it thickens to form a lofty, foamy shape.
- If you are whisking by hand, it will take around 8 to 12 minutes to reach to the optimal fluffiness.
- After the mix is done, take a glass full with ice and milk, and then put some whipped coffee mixture on top and serve. You can even mix it before drinking, if desired.

# PASS THE BRUSH CHALLENGE
It was really impressive this lockdown seeing girls taking their make up to the next level. Well I am talking about the talk of the town, the new ‘pass the brush’ trend. It is basically a challenge from Tiktok which flourished over all the social media sites.
In the ‘pass the brush’ challenge, a TikToker had to get a makeup brush and initially they started the video with a no makeup or you can say a natural look and then glam up after momentarily covering the phone camera with the makeup brush itself. Then, they had to pass on the brush to the next makeup friend, who goes through the same process. These video clips are later on compiled into one video to show the flawless transitions. It’s fantastic to see all these beauty experts come together!
So guys, these were some of the glimpses of the latest thrilling social media trends over the internet these days which somehow added some spice to extra tingle of entertainment during this lockdown. Keep trying up for some more! Have fun.
