Putin birthday rhyming Twitterquake

Lots of Twitter users are baffled by a brand new Cyrillic hashtag, which, went on best of your brief message sharing service on Friday. Simply what does #?????????????????? mean? Can it be a brand new Russian nuclear bomb?
The key is really basic. Friday is Pm Vladimir Putin’s birthday, and Russian Twitter users are celebrating it using a flash mob. They post funny brief rhymes, that finish with “Thanks Putin for this” in Russian. Or in other words “Thanksputinforthis,” (Spasiboputinuzaeto) this is exactly why automatic translation will not perform using the phrase.

Russians are thanking Putin for a great deal of points. For good weather, for access to the world-wide-web and then for producing Barack Obama scratch his head. As well as a lessening of political liberties, widespread corruption and authoritarian trends in Russia.

The flash mob has truly come to be a competition among Putin’s opponents and supporters. The first kind formulate sarcastic rhymes even though the latter tend to focus at the former president/current prime minister’s achievements. New tweets marked from the hashtag come about inside their dozens each minute.
The modern trend naturally baffled non-Russian-speaking users of Twitter, and Russian humorists were speedy to come up with explanation. Thus far one of the most well-liked is the fact that #?????????????????? is a new Russian nuclear bomb. Another one is the fact that it can be a classic Russian greeting.

The rhyming game does have its roots back Soviet occasions, if the Communist Party was sarcastically thanked in such a fashion for every single little factor in people’s lives.

Putin’s birthday is becoming marked with many public actions in 2010. As an example the so-called Putin’s Army female fan club have baked a special cake with the PM and launched a poll to opt for the premier’s sexiest body component. Meanwhile, the Nashi [Ours] pro-Kremlin movement formed a big number 59 - Putin’s age - on one of Moscow’s streets.
