A Weird Record

Evan Williams must hold the record for “The Most People Using the Most Words He Created in the Least Time”, or something like that. First “blog“, “blogger” and now “twitter“. Is he the Bill Shakespeare of the 21st century? (Ok, I am being facetious.)

But seriously, is there anyone else who has added words to the language that have become ubiquitous so fast? I’d like to hear your thoughts.
