Social Media Grammar Breaks Rules

U kno its bad when this sentence doesnt seem wrong 2 u.

Seeing sentences like this should have proper speaking Americans taken aback. But unfortunately for the gurus who developed the English language, it is becoming more and more okay to write like this.

Not only are texting and instant messaging using poor grammar, but Facebook is even starting to become a haven for really bad grammar users.

Grammar isn’t the only problem Facebook users are having. Some social media networkers are now wondering if 140 characters in a status is enough to be concise in what they are saying.

An online chat was held on October 28th about these issues. Roy Peter Clark will have a 5 part blog discussing the results of the chat and also social grammar skills on poynter.org throughout November.
