Use It In Scrabble

Xanga, Blogger, Google, Odeo, and Twitter. Of all the web products I’ve worked on, Twitter is the first one with a name that was already in the dictionary when we launched.

Use It In Scrabble

According to Webster’s New Millennium Dictionary of English Google is a verb which means “to search for information about a specific person through the Google search engine” and a Blogger is “a person who keeps a Web log (blog) or publish an online diary.” Those words didn’t get official definitions untill well after they’d made it into the public lexicon.

Xanga and Odeo will have to wait to get into the big book but Twitter has been rocking it in one form or another since the 1300’s!
