Tweet Officially Entered English Language

Recently, the Oxford English Dictionary has acquired over 1,200 new or revised words demonstrating how much the language has changed. According to the dictionary, it expanded its entries for words "follow", "follower", and "tweet" in order to include social media terms.

So, it is now correct to refer to "tweet" as a posting on Twitter along with its more traditional meaning (a brief high-pitched sound). It wasn’t easy for the word to make its way into the language – to get it there, the editors had to break an Oxford Dictionary rule that a new word has to be used for a decade before consideration for inclusion. The dictionary also included such terms as “crowdsourcing", "flash mob", "geekery" and "dad dancing". Everyone knows what Tweet means, but do you know those new words?

Well, crowdsourcing is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as obtaining information or services by soliciting input from many people, normally through the Internet and usually for free and without offering compensation. Then, a "flash mob" is a group of people organized through the Internet or mobile phones or other wireless devices. All those people assemble in public in order to perform a prearranged action together and then immediately disperse.

Geekery, which previously meant only “bizarre circus acts”, now also means obsessive devotion to or knowledge of a particular subject or pursuit. It also refers to the state of being a geek or "geekiness". The dictionary also mentioned words “fiscal cliff", "e-reader" and "fracking". Finally, "dad dancing" was described by the editors as an awkward, unfashionable, or unrestrained style of dancing to pop music, as characteristically performed by middle-aged or older men. Now you know!

johnnysnake avatarfunny i live in Ontario, Canada in a pretty lame city but recently there as been a few "flash mobs" where just out of nowhere a bunch of younger adults walk into a convenience store and because there's so many just grab stuff of the shelves..nothing expensive just chips and chocolate bars and pop..kinda sad cause i bet 3/4 of them wouldn't have the balls to do it alone..oxford should put that in as an e.g.

It's not the internet that is killing the English language but the moronic halfwit n00bs that can't use the language correctly but can use the internet to spread their dumbness.
