Twitter is the 2009 Word of the Year
Yesterday, Discovery News announced that the word “Twitter” is the 2009 “Word of the Year.” According to Microsoft, “Twitter” was one of the most highly searched terms in the company’s new Bing search engine.
It’s hard to believe that only 3 years after its creation in 2006, the social networking and microblogging tool has been adopted by more than 6 million users.The company experienced an overall growth in unique visitors of 1382% within a year (Feb 08-Feb 09), and although that doesn’t necessarily mean all of those visitors become users, it does prove that Twitter is becoming a household name. Corporations, celebrities, small businesses and entrepreneurs can all be found on Twitter nowadays.
