Twitter to be listed in dictionary
Advertisement
#1
Social networking tool Twitter is all set to be listed in the 30th anniversary edition of the Collins English Dictionary.

The name of the micro-blogging website, which boasts of 1.8 million users, will appear as a noun as well as a verb in the edition to be published later this year.

"Hardly a day goes by when you don''t see some Twitter-related article. Hence I find it entirely unsurprising that this year we have not one Twitter-related entry in the dictionary, but three," the Telegraph quoted Elaine Higgleton, Collins editorial director, as telling the Daily Mail.

The entry under noun will read: "A website where people can post short messages about their current activities" and under verb it will read: "to write short messages on the Twitter website".

The word Twitterati, referring to website members, will also gain entry along with Twitterverse, which refers to the website and its users.

Twitter's user list includes names like Barack Obama, Britney Spears, Stephen Fry, Lily Allen, and Andy Murray. (ANI)
