Study Says Twitter Improves Users Language Skills Post Posted: Sat Sep 13, 2014 4:04 pm

A new study says that expressing your thoughts and views in 140 characters on Twitter may actually be improving your language skills.

Researchers looked at the top 100 most commonly used words on Twitter to prove the study.

Out of the 100 most used words, only two were shortened "RT" (shortened for re-tweet) and "u" (shortened for you). The rest of the words averaged about 4.5 letters and none were contractions.

researchers said, "Twitter may actually be improving its users' writing as it forces them to wring meaning from fewer letters."

As per their studies and views, a person tweeting has no option but concision and in a backward way, "the character limit actually explains the slightly longer word length we see".

Given finite room to work, longer words mean fewer spaces between them, which means less waste.

"Although the thoughts expressed on Twitter may be foreshortened but there is no evidence here that they are diminished," the study concluded
