Twitter adds lolcat language, similar to Facebook's pirate language in function

Twitter adds lolcat language that is based loosely off of the internet meme

By: Trace Hagan from Feb 8, 2013 @ 16:03 CST

Speaking plain English isn't enough for you? How about speaking Internet? With Twitter's new lolcat language, you can have your Twitter experience transformed from a mundane English affair to an all out meme-based Internet language. The changes aren't quite as dramatic and sweeping as that last sentence made them seem, but you can now browse Twitter with some of the terms updated to fit lolcat memes.


For instance, many of the words have been changed to all capitals. A more specific example--and one of the better changes--is the change that "View Summary" underwent. It now reads "VIEW SUMMARY. KTHXBYE!" Additionally, "More Changes" has been changed to simply read "MOAR."

The language is currently in beta and will likely undergo changes to perfect it as comments and suggestions come in from Twitter users. The setting can be changed in Twitter's Settings, or you can simply click this link to take you to Twitter with the new language.
