The Internet is a bizarre place. Social media platforms have turned into one of the most influential places on the internet. It only takes minutes for a new trend to set foot on these applications that suddenly spread like wildfire. There are plenty of fun trends on social media that capture the attention of users and keep them engaged. The latest trend that has caught the internet’s attention is the “look between your keyboard.”

The Keyboard Trend

Here’s how it works: Someone posts a prompt and then encourages people to find the answer to the prompt in the letters on their keyboards. Sometimes they’re clever, and sometimes a little silly. However, many of the memes being posted have no meaning behind them, besides the intention to cause confusion with nonsensical letters.

How It Began

It all started with a meme, according to Indy.100, which was posted on 4Chan, an image-based website that lets users post and comment on images anonymously in May 2021. The post featured a character from the anime series K-On called Yui Hirasawa along with the phrase “Look between T and O on your keyboard”.

On a keyboard, the letters Y, U, and I between T and O spell ‘Yui,’ a character from an anime series which is about girls who form a band through their high school’s music club. Since this post went viral, people have been making variations of the “look between your keyboard” memes.

Let’s take you through some of the best ones:

When law and order speak the language of the generation, it is meant to be understood,” said an X user. Another commented, “Haha. Catching every trend aptly!” “@DelhiPolice never fails to leave any trend on social media! The Unique way to guide the public to follow the rules,” posted a third.
