How hashtag is trending
Every other day BTS’ Army loves to make them a top trend, which only takes a few minutes due to the huge size of the fandom. It’s also a common fact that Twitter actually has to remove BTS tags all the time because Army is continuously unintentionally trending BTS words. And that’s what they are doing right now as you read this. Army has begun confessions for BTS, some of them about what they wish to see in the future, others shared embarrassing and relatable confessions about their initial thoughts about the band and the bandmates. While most are hilarious and dumb, some are really interesting and relatable.
There are a few people who have been talking about how they couldn’t differentiate between the BTS members. others confessed that they kept confusing the names every time their hair color changed. BTS boys have many nicknames, some are given by the ARMY while some are their former names, so its always abit confusing for new fans. BTS’s Suga aka Min Yoongi aka AgusrD has been one of the most talked-about BTS boys during the #ArmyConfessionTime on Twitter. A fan tweeted out saying that he/she would think Suga, AgustD and Yoongi were all different people. Similarly, people thought V and Kim Taehyung were two different bandmates.
Since BTS has alot of different content and social media apps to connent with their fans, alot of new army believed that bts personally messaged their fans (Although Jungkook HAS created groupchats with army a few times). Other confessions such as army thinking Magic Shop is a real place for army to visit, and that the VLIVE app actually belongs to BTS member V etc.
