Users Blame Today’s Wordle For “Ending Their Streak” After Missing Out On Just One Letter

Users have blamed today’s Wordle for “ending their streak” after many missed out on just one letter.

Players of the daily word game, which was recently taken over by The New York Times, have taken to Twitter to share their frustration at Wordle 249 on 23rd February 2022.

Warning: Wordle 249 spoilers ahead. 

One player took to the social media platform to share their result, which from their fourth try, showed all the letters being correct apart from the second to last, as they penned: “My streak ends here”. 


Another social media mogul wrote: “What the f*** is that word?” alongside a photo of Tom Holland crying.

Shreyas shared their unsuccessful result alongside the caption: “​​Just fell down to my knees. Shaking crying throwing up [sic]”. 

“So close yet so far,” said a different Wordle player as they posted their incorrect guesses. 


Other players had very strong opinions of today’s word, which ended up being “trove”, and didn’t shy away from sharing them on Twitter.

“Absolute bull****” said one user, while another simply admitted defeat. 

“Imma be honest I took the L today [sic],” said one player.


Meanwhile, another user found light in the situation and joked: “I really thought we were about to get him in the NYT wordle”, alongside a photo of Troye Sivan - referring to the fact that the word had almost all the same letters as the singer’s name.

The seemingly upsetting Wordle comes after users recently felt overjoyed by the “easy” word in yesterday’s game.


The latest Wordle reaction comes around a week after the game was taken over by The New York Times after the original creator, Josh Wardle, sold the game for a currently unknown seven-figure amount.
