Man, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary is just SAVAGE on Twitter. Who would have ever predicted that? Between them and Wendy’s they are two very surprising must-follows these days.
Just a few months ago, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary went in on a guy on Twitter who was complaining about their “rules.” As you can see by that link I just provided, dude was so burnt he just went ahead and deleted his tweets.
Now, the dictionary has turned its sharp wit towards one Kellyanne Conway after she appeared on Meet the Press and defended White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s claims of a larger turnout at the inauguration than anyone else had calculated.
Conway did this by creating a new term for lies called “alternative facts” and the dictionary was having none of it, dropping a savage sub-tweet of Conway’s claim.
The dictionary wasn’t done there though. They even devoted a whole page of their web site to it.
That’s almost as good as the Dallas Stars (who are NO strangers to trolling) dropping this on their jumbotron after Conway’s “alternative facts” take…
Needless to say, Twitter took great joy in the dictionary dropping the mic yet again on someone…
You’re not the only one.
