In another sign of its increasing acceptance as a mainstream business and
consumer technology tool, “Twitter” has today been named the most popular word
of the year, according to the Global Language Monitor (GLM).
The GLM released the 15 most popular words culled from the English-speaking
world, which now numbers more than 1.58 billion people, and found that "Twitter
" topped “Obama” and “H1N1”, the formal name for swine flu.
