Dictionary acknowledges humans can tweet, too

The Oxford English Dictionary has finally gotten around to acknowledging that tweeting isn't just for the birds.

In its latest update, the dictionary that describes itself as "the accepted authority on the evolution of the English language over the last millennium" has revamped the entry for "tweet" to include its social networking usage.

    Well now. Obama needs to move his family to NewOrleans. His kids could be playing in there yard ,or setting inside there house by a window and killed by a stray bullet. What race lives in this area that this happens? Why is it when African Americans start moving in a neighbor hood, all other races move out? Walk the streets in New Orleans today where only Aferican Americans live then you would know why. That's why people lock there windows. If you want to march in the streets, then do it in the areas where young kids are killed by gang members and by people who just don't care. Demaned more task force and police force. Let this be something you talk about to MR OBAMA.
