I’ve written about trending topics on Twitter before. I’ve even made fun of aforementioned trending topics. Today the grammarians may have made a comeback.
Then The Oatmeal posted a comic called Ten Words You Need To Stop Misspelling. I cheered–even more so when “Stop Misspelling” (spelled correctly!) began to trend in the afternoon.
This makes me wonder: How many people who tweeted the link above also participated in the woefully incorrect trending topics and didn’t even bat an eye? Or are we beginning to see the grammarians rise up and take back our Internet?
Never shall we die, grammarians. Now go forth and spread the good news.
