    If that’s the “top word”, it doesn’t say much for us as a society. Whaddaya expect from twits?

    Am I the only one who thinks Twitter is a giant fad that’s at the top of it’s bell-curve? All the Celebs and Media outlets jumped on it this year, but once they start getting bored with it thinks will go downhill in 2010 and beyond. Sure it’s here to stay, but it will be nice when you will be able to get your sport scores on TV again without them mentioning Tweets.

    The answer is a viral campaign by DU readers. Of repeated copy-pasting the word, Dvorak into Twitter.
