Today’s “apt” word comes as Wordle users were “in disbelief” over yesterday’s “irritating” word on 2nd March.
One player blamed yesterday’s word for losing their 43-day-long streak.
“Just lost my first wordle...Ended a 43 day streak,” the player wrote.
The latest Wordle reaction comes as the game was recently taken over by The New York Times after the original creator, Josh Wardle, sold the game for a currently unknown seven-figure amount.
The aim of the word game is to try and guess a five-letter word in under six tries.
