People are using the dictionary… online

A few days ago we considered whether dictionaries are obsolete in the age of Google.  Lexicographer Peter Sokolowski is proving that online dictionaries, at least, are not obsolete with his Twitter Feed. Mr. Sokolowski is the editor at large at Merriam-Webster. He tweets daily about what words are most frequently looked up at m-w.com and speculates about what is driving the interest in the “hot” word, usually an online news article.  Worth a follow as a word person or a teacher wondering about students’ vocabularies.
