Users on Twitter about earthquake tremors in Delhi
Nice to see that during the lockdown people did not loose their sense of humour. However, some users are irritated by so many earthquake memes which made it difficullt to get out some serious facts about the recent earthquake.
What did you do after 5:45 feeling #earthquake #tremors? I ran to fetch face #Masks rather than running towards #door to evacuate home! #COVID__19 has changed response system too! @PMOIndia@TomRaftery @thinkers360 #coronaupdatesindia https://t.co/Xsb8B3QY0x

After today’s #earthquake, a chat between 2 animals:
“Now these humans will understand how it feels to first cage someone & then to torture them in the cage”.
Nature is making us learn many things. Better we should learn. After all we r just one of the numerous species on earth
