Memes, Explainers Flood Twitter As Ship Gets Unstuck In Suez Canal

The MV Ever Given has been wedged diagonally across the canal since Tuesday



New Delhi:

The huge container ship which has been blocking the Suez Canal for almost a week started to move today, according to maritime traffic tracking sites.

The MV Ever Given has been wedged diagonally across the canal since Tuesday. It affected world supply chains and costed the global economy billions.

The stern of the boat has now moved away from the canal’s western bank, according to the Vesselfinder and myshiptracking sites, news agency AFP reported.

Twitter has been flooded with memes and reactions ever since the ship got stuck. Today was no different. Soon after the ship started to move, Suez Canal sprinted to the top trends on the social media website.

Many even shared graphic videos explaining the crisis.

369 ships have been currently stalled as they wait for the canal to reopen, authorities said.

Each day of the blockade could be costing global trade some $6-10 billion, according to a study published Friday by German insurer Allianz.

Various countries have offered assistance to clear the blockade.
