Kim Kardashian, please note - this is how the internet is broken. A dress, or rather #TheDress, is raising a storm in a tweet-cup because nobody, absolutely nobody, can decide what colour it is. Social media has run through a whole spectrum of emotions in the Great Dress Debate.

For more than 24 hours now, people across social media have been arguing about whether a picture that's gone viral shows a dress that is blue with a black lace fringe or white with a gold lace fringe.

The picture was initially posted on Tumblr by 21-year-old singer named Caitlin

McNeill, who asked for help in deciding what colour the dress was as she and her friends couldn't agree. Twitter rushed to help and soon #TheDress was trending worldwide.

Some pointed out that the Earth was still spinning:
