A Mysteriously Trending Hashtag Has Put Kafr El-Sheikh on the Map and the Memes are Pure Gold
Kafr El-Sheikh isn’t a place that you’d expect to see trending on Twitter. This morning it was one of the top trends in Egypt, and no one knew why. We’d love to find the person who started this trend just to ask him for the reason behind it.
Kafr El-Sheikh is an Egyptian governorate situated in the western part of the Nile Delta. The city’s name literally means ‘village of the chief’. It was home to the revolutionary leader Saad Zaghloul, Lake Burullus, and Abu Al Makarem mosque, among other historical sites.
Here are some of our fav memes from today’s trend!
Even Wael Ghonim tweeted about it, passing on a warm greeting to the residents of Kafr El-Sheikh.
