I know. I’m as tired as you are about hearing that another dictionary has added another set of words related to social media, providing further evidence that social media is here to stay.
Had it not been for the italics, I may have nodded off writing that sentence.
Last week, PR Daily reported that the Concise Oxford English Dictionary added “sexting,” “retweet,” and other social media words to its roster. In June, the Oxford dictionaries added terms like “Twittersphere” and “NSFW.” It also included initialisms such “LOL” and “OMG” in March. According to Mashable, Collins English Dictionary included “Twitter” as a noun and verb in 2009.
