Viral Twitter Thread Ignites a Debate Over the “Right” Way to Draw an X

How do you draw the letter X? It’s a simple question, but it’s one that has recently ignited a rousing debate on Twitter. On January 19, @SMASEY shared an image that demonstrated eight different ways to draw an X. If you’re like many folks, you probably didn’t give this a lot of thought prior to seeing the tweet. Once you figure it out, though, you’re bound to have a strong opinion on the “right” way to scribble one on paper.

The viral post, which now has over 19,000 retweets, is filled with comments by people both sharing their number and being incredulous to those who could make their X drawing any other way. Regardless of where you fall into this category, it’s fascinating to compare the responses. “General consensus is that Americans do 7 and 8 while [the] UK does 5 and 6,” @SMASEY wrote in a follow-up tweet. “Probably how we were taught. Not sure about other countries.”
