Editor’s Corner: Top Twitter Mistakes

My husband sent me this article from BuzzFeed and I laughed so much that I wanted to share it with you. Because of too many naughty words and Twitter handles, I have copied some of the phrases and photos from the article. I hope that I have sanitized it enough to provide you a valuable lesson without offending anyone.

This is part one of the “Top 10 Most Unforgivable Twitter Spelling Mistakes,” by Matt Stopera. Text in blue is mine; text in black is from Twitter and contains more errors than you can shake a stick at.

Granted (not granite)

· Never take life for granite…it comes & it goes.!
[KC – Apparently so do spelling, grammar, punctuation, trite remarks, and the Karma Chameleon.]

· don’t take life for granite #YOLO, so im living life with hella mistakes!!
[KC – No kidding!]

Nice piece of granite! Don’t take it for granted.

Genius (not genious)

· Im a genious in math yo
[KC – Thank goodness you didn’t say “writing” yo.]

· Whoooohoooo im a genious!!
[KC – Well, you started the sentence with a capital letter and spelled “a” correctly!]

· This company is just starting and the expansion will be rapid people thing im a genious how far ahead i have thought with this company
[KC – Oh, please, tell me where you work so I never buy stock in your company!]

Manners (not manors)

· I hate people that have no manors

· Some people have no manors at all, like who the f— raised you?
[KC – My mom and dad raised me. What about you? Salty Pete the peg-legged sailor?]

· #YouKnowWhatAnnoysMe when people don’t have table manors!!!!!!!!!!
[KC – #YouKnowWhatMakesMeSad When people don’t start sentences with a capital letter, use the wrong word in a rant, and end the non-sentence with ten exclamation
points.]

What lovely manors you have!

Vicariously (not bi-curiously)

· I don’t have any drama, so I must live bicuriously through yours ❤

· I wanna live bicuriously through them…is that a word?
[KC – Why yes, Virginia, it is a word. I just don’t think it is the word you are looking for.]
