Retweet Now in Dictionary

What a month for Twitter - On the first of August, TMCnet reported that a suicidal tweet resulted in a saved life and now, the term retweet has been added to the Oxford English Dictionary. It is fantastic to see how tech terms have permeated our lexicon and I am wondering if the word "Xerox" which is often substituted for the word 'copy" will eventually be replaced by retweet. Or perhaps it will be used like the word "recount" as time progresses.

Even if the definition remains - forwarding a  tweet to your followers via Twitter, having retweet in the dictionary is an awesome feat. smiley-smile
