The war between the generations never ends and each group seems to think they have all the answers, but no matter who is fighting who it seems millennials are always at the center of it. Whether they are lecturing baby boomers on how easy their generation had it compared to them, or educating generation z on all the tech “struggles” they will never know about, one thing is for sure being a millennial is a strange time to be from.

You feel like you are simultaneously from the future and the past depending on who you are talking to. One Twitter user tried to not only sum this feeling up but share why it was, in fact, positive and people agree he has some points.

This Twitter user took to the platform to explain why millennials are ‘the most unique generation of all time’

User @zedinfluencer began his thread by clarifying that people born between 1985 and 1995 are the most unique of all the generations. It is safe to assume that the user probably setting dates to define the “millennial generation,” however, Pew Research Centre announced in 2018 that from now on they would only be applying the term “millennial” to people born between 1981 and 1996.

He broke down the differences into categories of the evolution of technology, work mentality and the relationship with tradition and explained why millennials had the benefit of sitting in the middle of both worlds.

So what’s so important about dividing and defining these generations anyway? Michael Dimock, president of Pew Research Center wrote in the same blog post that one primary reason is for research, “Generational cohorts give researchers a tool to analyze changes in views over time. They can provide a way to understand how different formative experiences (such as world events and technological, economic and social shifts) interact with the life-cycle and aging process to shape people’s views of the world.”

So what kind of formative experiences have millennials gone through? They went through a world transformed by 9/11, the first black president, an economic recession, rapid shifts in technology (remember dial-up) and social media. Through all these changes people born in this era became generational chameleons.

Many people in the comments agreed and added more points to his argument

While others wanted to prove him wrong

Still, there is no exact science to these groupings. Millennials and Gen z both span over 16 years, while the Baby Boomer era crosses over the course of 19 years.
