Twitter Enters the Collins English Dictionary

Twitter is featured in upcoming 30th anniversary Collins English Dictionary, writes The Telegraph.

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”.

By the way things are going, we’ll most likely see more dictionaries adding Twitter, and other coined expressions as well as descriptive brands from social media soon.
