TIL Reddit Just Earned A Guinness World Record For RedditGifts
Reddit AKA the front page of the internet for cat gifs and atheist rage comics just earned a Guinness World Record for largest online Secret Santa game. Over the last three years, RedditGifts facilitated anonymous gift exchanges between 30,025 participants (including Stephen Colbert) in 115 countries. Only the Reddit team gets the award and they're not sharing it with all the users although I'm sure if asked, one of the team members would do a IAMA about how their life changed thanks to a piece of paper. It was a random Reddit user named someguyfromcanada (pictured) who got the ball rolling with the stat nerds at Guinness.
