Last year, Twitter had found a way to keep itself entertained amidst the pandemic. Users shared throwback pictures of themselves from January 2020 when they were blissfully unaware of the curse of the coronavirus quarantine. The challenge read, “A photo of you in January 2020 without imagining what was to come.” Read more on it here.
