It's the second day of September in the year 2010. In middle-endian date format, this is written as 9/02/10. "90210" is the name of a television show from the 1990s that people in their late-30s talk about whenever they are nostalgic for their early-20s. Hence, today was 90210 Day. Especially on Twitter:
