#HowToConfuseAMillennial is a hashtag that was originally created by Boomers and Generation X-ers to mock Millennials but was quickly overrun by Millennial Twitter users mocking how their ancestors are out of touch with the Millennial generation.
At 9:00 AM EST on September 4th, 2016, the Twitter account for a site specializing in hashtag games, @HashtagRoundup, posted the first tweet with the hashtag #HowToConfuseaMillennial (shown below).
Initial tweets using the hashtag gently ribbed millennials with jokes about their inability to understand old technology like maps (below, left) and landline phones (below, right).
Once Millennial Twitter users caught wind of the hashtag, they used it to bash the generations before them, highlighting the economic difficulties Millennials face due to the mistakes of previous generations. These tweets were very popular, and soon became the dominant content under the "#HowToConfuseMillennials" hashtag. For example, one tweet by @TVsCarlKinsella, shown below, gained over 24,000 retweets and 36,000 likes in two days.
