Wordnik challenge: logophiles, tweet your word power.

San Mateo, USA

We're not the first to notice that Twitter is a word-lover's paradise. From dictionary accounts and grammar guardians to language courses, poetry tweeters and Tweet-cyphers logophiles thrive on Twitter. There’s even a site dedicated to algorithmic sonnets assembled from Tweets written in iambic pentameter (whether the author meant to or not).

One avid example: each week @wordnik challenges people to tweet sentences that demonstrate the meaning of one of its word-of-the-day vocabulary words. Funny, rhythmic, and referentially sublime, the winners are almost always little puzzles unto themselves. The best are collected in a weekly wrap-up on the @wordnik blog.
