Memories Gotten From An Unusual Throwback Thursday. Share your comments on this.

The 14-day lockdown enforced in the commercial hub, Lagos, neighbouring Ogun and the nation's capital, Abuja.


Nigeria implemented a sweeping quarantine for three major states that are home to almost 30 million people in a bid to slow the spread of the new coronavirus in Africa's most populous country.


The lockdown in Lagos, Abuja and Ogun kicks in at 11pm local time (22:00 GMT) on Monday and will stay in place for at least two weeks, President Muhammadu Buhari announced on Sunday, a little over a month after Nigeria confirmed its first case.

The lockdown has resulted to some great memeries gotten from Throwback Thursday.

It has been said that indomie generation may not have the opportunity to know some of these memories.


It’s hard to pinpoint exactly where Throwback Thursday started. If you do a search using the Instagramers iPhone app that lets you easily pull up the oldest tags on file, you see that a user named @bobbysanders22 is the first person on record as using the tag, in 2011, not long after Instagram added hashtags as a feature.


However, Instagramers founder Philippe Gonzalez tells us that’s no indication that the user started the hashtag. “We are never 100 percent sure, as Instagram is removing old tags these last months and some old ones could have been deleted.” Instagramers included Flashback Friday as one of its recommended hashtag games when the feature was first introduced in January 2011. So pinpointing the true first #tbt post is tricky.


Looking at Google Trends, though, it seems people started looking up Throwback Thursday more regularly in February 2012, and since then, interest in the hashtag game has increased substantially.
