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:

A bit basic maybe but, ya know, harmless.

But then the tweets started getting a bit more pointed...


And annoying.


And actually just kind of sh*tty.


But, of course, millennials fought back. 

And that's when things got LIT!


Tell 'em!






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.
