Oxford English Dictionary includes new definition for 'tweet'
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Tweeting isn't just for the birds anymore, now that the Oxford English Dictionary has revamped the word's entry.
The word 'tweet,' now includes social networking usage as a verb and a noun, as in "to make a posting," or "a posting made" on Twitter.
A new word needs to be in use for 10 years before being added to the dictionary.
Oxford Dictionary's chief editor says it made an exception for this entry.
