Ever asked someone to remind you about something and they ended up forgetting to do so? Well, it turns out some people will actually take the task to heart and remind you even after seven years.

In 2011, Twitter user itsneishabby asked Twitter to remind her not to have kids after seven years. At that time, the tweet was just another random post on the website, eventually buried under thousands more after a few hours. Until someone actually reminded her not to have kids—a few months before the post turns exactly seven years.

Twitter user DougExeter replied to this lady’s tweet to remind her not to have kids and the post instantly went viral. Who remembers a tweet from seven years ago, anyway? Well, this guy did. But he was a year late already. The user replied and told him that her daughter is about to turn a year old next month.

The conversation didn’t end there. The guy replied with: “you should have said five years” and the lady aptly answered with: “you right.”

you should have said five years

He then posted a screenshot of the whole conversation with the caption: “the best interaction that i ever had on this web site,” and the post gained a lot of traction. People wondered how he managed to remember this tweet after all these years.

Some speculated about how he did it and asked what prompted him to do this.

Did you put a calendar reminder n your computer all those years ago or something?

I suspect he's searching for "Remind me in x years" in old tweets hoping to find something that lines up.

Others already enlisted his help to remind them of something they’d like to do in the future.

Can you ask me in 5 years "was it worth it?", please?

Actually, there’s in a “remind me bot” on Twitter that you can ask to remind you of anything. Created by another Twitter user, @RemindMeBot was put up four years ago. All you need to do is tweet at him and ask for a reminder. The account has been actively reminding people until middle of last year.

You can now tweet at me to ask for a reminder! Just mention me and include the words "remind me tomorrow" 🙂
