An intimate conversation about an Indian girl talking about a man in her life to another woman has broken the Internet record.
The girl, apparently named Shweta, has been trending on Twitter, and the microblogging site has been flooded with Shweta memes.
Shweta, who forgot to put her mic on mute during a Zoom call with her colleagues, can be heard sharing intimate details about a man with her friend.
The minutes long discussion continues despite other participants trying to tell Shweta "your mic is on,” which is also trending.
Mishaps happening during Zoom meetings seem to have become the new normal, such as a child walking into the frame during the virtual conference. Some people have even screamed at their spouses thinking the speakers are on silent mode. One person had even reportedly been attacked by a pet, another turned into a cat.
Talking of animals, recently, a Texas lawyer had his Zoom filter stuck on a filter of a cat during a court appearance in the 394th District Court in Brewster County, in a hilarious technical mishap.
"I can see that," the judge said after a few seconds of awkward silence.
Judge Roy Ferguson presides over a number of counties in West Texas, close to the town of Marfa and the Mexican border. He tweeted a video of the interaction, saying: "IMPORTANT ZOOM TIP: If a child used your computer, before you join a virtual hearing check the Zoom Video Options to be sure filters are off. This kitten just made a formal announcement on a case in the 394th," the Independent reported.
County Attorney Rod Ponton sounded unmistakably anxious as he said: "Are you there judge?" after being alerted to that the fact that his face was not showing up on the call.
"I don't know how to remove it, I got my assistant here, she's trying to," Ponton said while the mouth and eyes of the cat moved along with his words and movements.
"We're prepared to go forward with it," he said, appearing to admit defeat.
He added: "I'm here live, I'm not a cat."
