We are all aware of International Men’s Day every November 19.
On this day, the discrimination against men is also highlighted to improve gender relations and equality.
However, the male folks on twitter have chosen April 9 to celebrate themselves.
They named it international twitter men’s day.
The male gender on twitter are showing solidarity with one another and tweeting positivity.
Women have also joined in celebrating the men and reminding them of how strong and special they are.
