Buzzfeed made a Y2K joke and its readers were completely baffled - 'what is that'
And now, BuzzFeed readers are, too.
The digital news organization sent out a tweet comparing the situation to Y2K, the technological glitch that some feared would paralyze the world's computer systems at the turn of the millennium.
And a chunk of BuzzFeed's followers had no idea what the acronym meant.
Here's the original BuzzFeed tweet:
