How do you write an x? The internet is divided and no one can agree
22 January 2019, 17:26
People are debating how to draw the letter 'x' and it's surprisingly controversial.
There are some things you just do without thinking. For instance, the way you draw the letter 'x' was probably something you learned as a kid, so you don't put too much thought into your technique, right? After one Twitter user posted a chart of all the different ways to draw the letter 'x', the internet is officially overthinking how they've been writing the letter.
@SMASEY asked Twitter one simple question: which way do you draw an X?
Also this is so interesting to me - which way do you draw an X? Colored line being the first stroke pic.twitter.com/a0WTl8WT7P— sixers smasey (@SMASEY) January 20, 2019
They shared a colourful chart which included the various ways one might draw an x. Needless to say, people quickly declared their allegiances. However, not everyone agreed on the "correct" way to write the letter 'x'.
People provided very compelling reasoning for why their way was the proper way.

People who draw bottom to top are also the ones that put their toilet paper on the holder the wrong way.

Most folks had strong feelings about 7.
I feel like if you're not 7 you're fucking weird https://t.co/X83PsrW2II— Gladd (@xGladdOnTwitch) January 21, 2019
And people threw in new and innovative ways to draw the letter 'x'

To be honest, the whole debate was making people rethink everything.
Saw this. Immediately forgot how I have been drawing x's my entire lift. Had to write each one down. None felt right. Taking all words with x's out of my vocabulary until further notice.— Kelsey Campbell (@KCampbellyeg) January 21, 2019
Thinking that a friend or family member might be a 3 is quite frankly SCARY.
Sometimes I'm like "it's so beautiful to see diversity of lives!" And then sometimes I learn how other people write the letter x and I want to vomit https://t.co/t8W0AINfNa— Panda T. Bear (@WarehousePanda) January 20, 2019
Judging by people's answers, 7 and 8 seem to be quite popular. 5 and 6 are also techniques that people admitted to using. Folks were skeptical about many of the others but we know for a FACT that people who use 1-4 walk among us–hidden in plain sight.
