Technology and its associated jargon, especially in the social media realm, is fast becoming the primary source of new words and phrases. A little ironic as many of these phrases were "borrowed" from English in the first place and either altered or given new meanings - to the point where the new meaning often supersedes the original in prevalence of usage.e.g. web, net, and maybe even mouse.
Is this technological influence on our language linguistic barbarism, an inevitable and necessary evil, or an exciting development that could possibly lead to English undergoing the most marked change since the great vowel shift?
