@GrammarGirl @PeterSokolowski @KoryStamper Fair point but I would have thought that the distinction between formal and informal less clear.
Am I correct in thinking that the distinction between "slang" and "official English" is more difficult to find today than it was pre social media?
Which got me thinking about the conundrum for dictionaries that is social media. It used to be that words had to be written down before a word was no longer considered slang, right? But now with social media there must be millions of written uses of this and other "non-words."
@GrammarGirl I just sent a social media note to our mutual friend @sparCKL who is getting a short story published in @Playboy. I said "congrats" and then got to wondering if this is a recognized english word. It's not. At least it's not in the unabridged @MerriamWebster.
