Stupid High School Kids (and Teachers) Freak Out Over Wikipedia Blackout

The best part of any internet news story is when the social media power user and sometime Gawker contributor Katie Notopoulos starts searching for it on Twitter. Like the SOPA-driven Wikipedia blackout, which sure freaked out high school kids—and their teachers.

Katie is still collecting the best of the Great Twitter Wikipedia Freakout, as is the one-joke Twitter account @herpderpedia. We also used a bunch of Tweets from @Hermit_Thrush_, who found a bunch of teachers—teachers—whining that they couldn't do their lessons without Wikipedia.

Without further ado, we present to you: the internet.
