Amazon sent some emails to its customers that weren't exactly what people were... expecting.

The emails sent Tuesday told recipients that a gift had been purchased from their baby registry. There was just one problem-- many of the customers don't have baby registries, or even babies for that matter.

The company has chalked it up to a technical error, saying in statements the emails were a glitch-- but not before the mistake caused confusion across the internet.

The reactions on Twitter ranged from befuddlement to anger to bemusement.

It's not immediately clear how many customers were affected by the mistake. Amazon told Ad Age it was notifying customers affected by the error.
