This just goes to show that timing really is everything. Maybe everyone needed to end the decade with an empowering song from Spears? It's certainly how this other Twitter user started the decade in 2010 when he first tweeted about the similarity.

And yes, to his point, he definitely did kickstart this trend before it became a "thing."
