A significant chunk of Twitter has recently had a collective near-meltdown after realizing she had freckles in the same area of their body.

It all started with a tweet from user @AarynWhitley, who asked her female followers, as it was a “myth” that all women had a freckle in the middle of the wrist. They also included a group of photos that seemed to show a number of different women with freckles in similar places.

In the time since, @AarynWhitley received about 11,000 comments on her post, many of the women who were amazed to discover that they did, indeed, share that trait.

A few of the women said that they were certain that they did not have one to actually control their own wrists — even their jewelry and seeing the freckle.

There is, however, a likely explanation for anyone new discovered wrist freckles. As noted by the times and The Sun, freckles are more likely to appear on light skin that is exposed to direct sunlight, because they will darken with repeated exposure. And since wrists, together with faces and hands are more often exposed to light, they tend to appear in similar spots on the individual people.

That hasn’t stopped some Twitter-users, without a freckle of feeling a bit left out, though.

“@raikohru has no freckle. She has violated the law,” one user joked.
