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.
