Do people use real words anymore?
Every few days, I’ll peruse twitter to see if there is anything exciting going on in the world. Often I will check the trending hashtags, they seem to be a great way to catch up on news without all the bull.
Over the past few years I have been having such a hard time trying to figure out what the hell people are saying. I know twitter limits you to 140 characters, but you can still form actual words.
I noticed this years ago when I was selling cell phones. Back then, keyboards on phones didn’t exist so you really had to work to text someone.
Yes I am that old.
Kids would abbreviate things to save their thumbs.
Now, we have full keyboards and unlimited texting, why not use it?!
It’s bad enough trying to understand folks who purposely spell words wrong, but when you shorten words it's just infuriating.
I think I am starting to become an angry old man.
Maybe I should get a rocking chair, sit on my front porch, and yell at those annoying kids who cut through my lawn.
