Pakistani Twitter gets nostalgic and names things today's young generation wouldn't understand

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. Ready to feel really old?

This user was ready with a list.

Several users reminisced about the market affordability in those times.

We've always been multitaskers.

Anyone getting flashbacks?

Jugaar is in our blood.

The hours we must've spent growing snakes. Petition to bring this back?

If you know, you know.

When everyone was a pirate.

The OG social media.

Kids, be thankful you don't have to deal with antenna fixing for those clear pixels.

Raise your hand if you know this cat.

Even babies had flip phones in that era.

Something we'd rather not remember.

Did Twitter miss out on anything that the younger generation wouldn't understand? Let us know in the comments.

Im one of the new generation kid, who has seen all of these. So you theory that new generation doesn't know about these is invalid.
