This is both fantastic and a sure sign that Coronatine is getting to us.
A Facebook group where people pretend to be Ants has blown up to 1.8 million followers. They act like ants, post pictures about ants, and serve a queen. For instance, the queen posted a command to dig, so in the comments, 13,000 people responded with the word ‘dig.’
The group was started by Tyrese Childs, a college student who had to go back home to his family in North Dakota due to the pandemic. He said the group blew up from 100,000 to 1.8 million since March.
“I think people are searching for something to do right now,” Childs said to NBC News. “You can only scroll so much on social media.”
The group is private, and Childs claims to have had so many requests that just going through them has essentially become a full-time job. If you want to request to join the colony, you can do so here.
