What is your text-door number neighbour and how does the challenge work?
Everyone should have two number neighbours, or text-door neighbours. Your number neighbour is whoever is next to your phone number either side. It's the person with the last digit of the number as one number higher or lower than yours.
E.g. if your number ends in "3" your number neighbour will have exactly the same phone number as you, except theirs will either end in "2" or "4". Hence, being your number neighbour!!!
In the challenge, people are texting the person with the neighbouring number, and posting on Twitter the response they get.
According to Know Your Meme, the origin of the meme came from back in 2018 when someone on Urban Dictionary defined "Text Door Neighbour" as "the people who are a digit either side of your phone number. Many a friendship has been struck up by saying hi to a text door neighbour."
The meme has gone viral again, after a Twitter user texted his number neighbour and then asked his followers to do the same:
everyone text your phone number neighbor and tell us what they say
