(SPOT.ph) And another hashtag trend grips the Internet. Every Thursday all summer long, Instagrammers have been treated to #ThrowbackThursday and/or #tbt. It’s gotten so big that, as we speak, exploring #throwbackthursday on IG results in over 20,000 images. The trend has also spewed over to other social media platforms, with eager subscribers cross-posting their contribution to the hashtag on Facebook and Twitter. We share the 20 best #TBT images that we didn’t mind appearing on our feed:

Dani Barretto (@danibarretto) acknowledges and joins in on the trend: "Ako ba ’to? #AwkwardThrowback nakikisali lang, @mikocarreon @lilmisswonderwoman @gerdperez @davidguison hahaha"
Dominique Cojuangco (@dominiquecojuangco), meanwhile, takes her mom, braces and all, with her as she takes part in TBT. She says: "Lol #throwbackthursday"
