OPEN THREAD: Is “Unfriend” The True Word Of The Year 2009?

|

Unfriend Word Of The YearThe New Oxford American Dictionary has officially revealed its Word of the Year for 2009:

Without further ado, the 2009 Word of the Year is: unfriend.

unfriend – verb – To remove someone as a ‘friend’ on a social networking site such as Facebook.

As in, “I decided to unfriend my roommate on Facebook after we had a fight.”

The announcement also includes some runners up, including “birther,” “freemium,” “netbook,” “intexticated,” and “teabagger” (the political one).

I’d also like to add to the list the following suggestions:

Tweet

Tweeting

Celebritydeath

Retweet

Pattinson

Via-Twitter

Seriouslytwitter

Anything involving any of the letters in the word “Twitter”

Twitter
