WordPress fans were excited to hear that the software was briefly mentioned on the popular Netflix original series Orange is the New Black. In case you missed it, here’s a quick summary of the reference, captured by Megan Gray:
This isn’t WordPress’ first pop culture reference. The software was also mentioned in Lily Allen’s “URL Badman” song released last year.
It wasn’t too long ago that mentioning WordPress to an acquaintance in a bar would get you a quizzical face in return. Fast forward a few years and WordPress is now used by 24.1% of all websites, with a content management system market share of 60.4%, according to the most recent estimation from W3Techs. The software is now versatile enough to power everything from simple used panty e-commerce sites to full-blown weapons guidance systems.
Where have you seen WordPress mentioned in the wild?
Love that new ICBM guidance plugin – another reference that made me laugh. Thanks, @Sarah!
