"A hug is worth a thousand words. A friend is worth more." This quote perfectly defines the wonderful bond of friendship.

Today, India is celebrating International Friendship Day. This day is observed on July 30 each year and is celebrated in India on the first Sunday of August.

The day celebrates relationships that go beyond bloodlines. From the person you call at 3 AM after a break-up to your go-to person for fashion advice, from the unpaid therapists to gym buddies, this day is the perfect time to appreciate the contributions of friends for making our lives beautiful.

Amid the pandemic, when we cannot step out for Friendship Day brunches or exchange bands, social media comes to the rescue. On Sunday, people across India took to various social media platforms to wish a happy friendship day to their friends.

Twitter has been flooded with tweets about friendship making 'Friendship Day' trend.

Here's a look at how Indians are celebrating 'Friendship Day' on Twitter.
