From 090078601, cassette reels and pencil saviours to landline internet, netizens revive faded memories from their childhoods.

The world has drastically changed in the last two decades, especially after social media entered the conversation and revolutionised how we present ourselves and interact with others. Netizens on Twitter have started a trend where they go back to pre-social media days and name things from their childhood that today's generation just wouldn't get.

These references to the good old days may have netizens feeling a bittersweet sort of nostalgia but they sure are enjoying retrieving old memories and confusing the youngsters. Re-tweeting a post that reads, "Without saying your age, say something today a young person wouldn't understand," netizens have everything from 090078601 to cassette reels and pencil saviours to landline internet, as their replies.
