WWWs?

Can someone please tell me why so many bloggers are using the word internets? It has always been internet, to the best of my knowledge, and makes more sense to me (isn´t it just one world wide web?).
So grammer geniuses (genii?) and Oxford Dictionary editors (who of course hang out here in their lunch breaks for a few laughs) enlighten me.

It's a joke, DrJ. I'm pretty sure our delightful US president uttered the word "internets," but it could have been some other assclown.

Ahhhh, thanks. That helps clarify it for all those non-Americans who cruise through the web....in jokes can be tough in a place like this.

I can also get worse with the interweb(s), intarweb(s) or even the webernet.
