Women across America yesterday were struck with an odd moment of self-doubt when the massive online retailer Amazon sent out emails alerting untold numbers they had a gift on the way from their baby registry. Normally, that’d be good news. But what if you aren’t having a baby?

Thankfully, this isn’t an instance of Alexa listening in and jumping to some pretty intense conclusions. And it wasn’t a phishing scam, as some early reports suggested. CNN reports it was just a “glitch” in the system. Nonetheless, Twitter ran with it.

Good job, Twitter.
