    A meme is anything that is spread through sharing and imitation. If you don’t like that definition, take it up to that one biology guy who came up with it

      By that (definitely incorrect) definition, all content on any mass media is a “meme”.

        That is actually the original definition when Richard Dawkins first coined the term. Basically it is an idea which spreads through the minds of people who repeat that idea. But it’s definitely not the commonly understood definition in a community name like “microblog memes”

          Considering how many memes everywhere are just screenshots of a social media post, I’d say it is the practical definition.
