On the 13th of Febuary, @Adiiilaaa posted a photo of herself wearing a blue tunic with a navy blue hijab while standing next to a bin lined with a recycling bag in the same colour.
She wrote; “My Boyfriend and i colour-coordinated our outfits today”
In less than 24 hours, the tweet went got many retweets and went viral.
It has been retweeted 111K times and liked by 35K people. Her story was featured on blogs and websites such as Teen Vogue.
The 19-year-old apparently did not expect the massive reaction the tweet got and while enjoying her social media fame, she explained in another tweet that she was only trying to humor her friends and had no idea it would go viral.
She wrote: “omg the tweet was just supposed to humour my circle of friends ??”
