Brand New Words for the Mid-2000-Teens


Twitterror: A mistake on Twitter, like a post over 140 characters that gets cut off mid-sentence. (I twitterred, and now I look like an idiotwit.)

Idiotwit: How you feel once an irretrievable twitterror has been idiotweeted.

Facebookworm: 21st century version of the old expression, “bookworm”.

Myspace: A term for anything out of date and relegated to older generations. (“Grandma is so Myspace!”)

Yahoo: (See “Myspace”)

Instagrammys: The awards for the internet’s most popular 15-second songs

Sputumblr: An accurate description of 70% of the content on Tumblr

Thumblr: A little known subset of Tumblr involving only pics of thumbs.

Redditiot: A Reddit moderator

Huffington Pre: A term for whatever came before the Huffington Post
