Note to old people - don't mess with millennials on social media. It won't end well...
If there is one thing Millennials know how to use, it is a social media.
Last Sunday (September 4th), the hashtag #HowToConfuseAMillennial began trending on Twitter with various comments and pictures from the older generations.
Some of them were harmless enough:

In summary, if older generations want to unwisely criticise younger generations they may not want to do it on social media.
We're all rather good at it.
