A video went viral on Twitter of a freshly cut piece of meat spasming which left Twitter users horrified and reconsidering their diet choices.

The video, posted by Weird and Terrifying shows a piece of meat spasming while someone is holding it. It’s not the first time a video had gone viral of a piece of meat spasming. A similar video went viral in 2020.

The spasm reportedly happens when salt is added to fresh meat. Adding salt to the meat draws water out from the surface and is used to preserve the meat.

In the viral Twitter video, the cameraman holds up the piece of meat in front of the camera. The surface of the meat looks like it is bubbling after it had recently been slathered in salt.

Daily Mail reported that experts say that this only happens with the ‘freshest meat’ and the pulsations are due to the animal’s nerve endings, which are still alive and react to the salt.

“Yea I’m going vegan,” one user commented.

“This really freaks me out,” another user said.
