People are very conflicted over the correct way to write the letter X


Here's something to be conflicted about that you've probably never even thought about before:

Twitter users are very confused over the proper way to write the letter X. Many people - myself included - had no idea there was more than one way to draw the letter, let alone 8 as the diagram suggests. 

Explanations of the phenomenon so far have included what hand you write with, and what country you learnt to write in - US seems to be either a 7 or an 8, whereas 5 and 6 seem to be pretty popular in the UK. 

I am a proud 7 - which way do you write your x's?
