They call it “Breaking the Internet.” Not really sure how that works. The first time I heard that term, it was applied to Kim Kardashian’s butt and I scratched my head.
How was something like Kim K’s butt going to break the internet? Do they know how the internet works and how much it would take to literally break it? But, enough geek talk. Getting back to what we were talking about, these sports pictures blew up on social media and across the net.
If anything was going to break the internet, it was how much attention these shots got when they first hit the web. They made so much commotion, traffic slowed down that day. Work was not getting done. Facebook had a meltdown and Twitter was tweeted into a social media history. If that’s called breaking the internet, then now I understand.
