The feeling of getting your first salary is something that can never really be replicated. Not even if you change jobs and get your salary at a new job.
That feeling of earning money borne of your own hard work and energy that you’ve spent doing work that at the same time made you happy, frustrated and tired is truly extraordinary.
So it was interesting to see today that many people were sharing their first salary on Twitter, leading it to trend on Indian Twitter.
Apparently, this came out from a random tweet someone made asking people to share their first income, the place from where they got it, and what age they were at when they got their first salary.
This tweet is apparently the one that started it all.
Things soon took off from there with other people on Twitter quote tweeting it and posting their first salary.
And that too, to such extent, that the phrase ‘first salary’ is still trending on Twitter with over 16,000 tweets to it. Along with this, phrases like ‘Age 16’, ‘Age 21’, and ‘Age 18’ also ended up trending.
Some famous people also joined the trend and gave out at what age they got their first salary, the amount and how they earned it.
A Twitter account even revealed late actor Dev Anand’s first salary.
Another Twitter user posted about Shah Rukh Khan’s first salary.
Someone also posted about what was allegedly Sachin Tendulkar’s first salary.

Of course, as with everything, there even people started making memes about it, especially those who are not earning yet or haven’t started to work.
