Tumblr users are startled when they see Tumblr’s layout upside down, along with a clock like they’ve never seen before.
The microblogging site has become the discussion center on Twitter as people share their opinions on the changes.
But Stranger Things fans quickly realized it had something to do with Netflix’s hit series.
So here’s what’s being said about the recent changes on Tumblr.
The Tumblr layout is upside down
On Thursday (June 30), Tumblr decided to turn its layout upside down and even add a clock on the homepage, confusing several users.
The “t” on the homepage and other categories in the top bar appear to be inverted.
In no time, confused users rushed to Twitter to understand what was going on.
A user tweeted, “Well I think Tumblr is upside down today, I was so confused”
“I wish Tumblr didn’t do this, it just confuses me to death and I can’t read.” said another user referring to the latest changes.
Adding to the above tweets, another user wrote“what the heck has tumblr done to its layout NOW”
The changes apply to Stranger Things Season 4 Vol. 2
Does the whole upside-down issue ring a bell?
The social networking site appears to have partnered with Netflix to promote Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 2, which is due out on July 1, 2022.
The new layout is a nod to the alternate dimension in the parallel section of the show.
And the clock is the recurring grandfather clock believed to be associated with the origin of Vecna.
However, the changes are met with mixed reactions. While fans really think the show is “cool,” some feel the changes are unnecessary.
“Tumblr is doing some wrong things right now, that’s cool.” Tweeted one.
Other expressed“Tumblr layout is upside down for weirder things, it’s so cool”
“Tumblr turning itself upside down seems a bit unnecessary to me.” added Another.
Netflix partners with Spotify
Netflix is leaving no stone unturned when it comes to Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 2 as it has also teamed up with Spotify to bring its viewers an upside down experience.
The music platform service has partnered with the streaming service to create the Upside Down playlist based on your recent favorite picks, as in the songs you’ve heard most and best from the show itself.
