Every 98 minutes, a new english word is created. With that you know, how many words out there are created throughout the year.
Twitter is perhaps the fastest growing social network, and even more talked about service. This makes twitter the No.1 on the list of most popular terms of 2009 for English Language.
The name itself is addictive (I like to say, “Tw-i-tt-er”), and thus it was declared the top word of 2009 by Global Language monitor which tracks English Language.
So, Twitter does Defeat Barack Obama and H1N1 in the phrase too, and it was quite obvious. Obama, H1N1 etc. had been trending topics on twitter i.e most tweeted about, they said it through twitter so it was going to win.
Massive growth in Social Media has benefited twitter a lot, and twitter has broken so many records!
