break the Internet

a.k.a. breaking the Internet, broke the Internet
A phrase that refers to when you share something online that's legitimately amazing, and it rises above all the social media noise to create a genuine buzz that actually dominates the global conversation, then you're "breaking the Internet" dude.

Historical perspective: As of 2018 it's not actually possible to "break" the net but China and The Great Firewall are coming close.
