13 examples of taking the Grammar Nazi trends to a new level
Grammar has always been a hot topic on the internet. Especially when it comes to Twitter, as there is a character limit.
In order to save characters and time, we shorten the words to a bunch of letters, numbers, and icons.
This way of communication is affecting the grammar and without good grammar, you will not able to express your thoughts and ideas. You should always remember that your online identity is created and maintained solely by you.
In the conversational, sometimes the casual world of Twitter, good grammar remain essential for keeping your followers tuned into your message.
Whether you are a major brand or an individual tweeting from a professional account or even if you just use Twitter in your personal life, the better your style, the more clarity your message will receive.

The internet has become a key part of modern communication. It has influenced language structure. When using Facebook or Twitter, people tend to use sentences that are as simple as possible.
With the development of social networks and technology, people have become increasingly lazy to use grammar in their everyday communication.
Some people think that correct English grammar matters only to teachers and is of no real importance in daily life. This is certainly not true.
Grammar, regardless of the country or the language, is the foundation of communication. When a message is relayed with a correct grammar, it is easier to understand the purpose and meaning of that message.
In order to communicate, a person should know the grammar of the language. It is important to be able to express yourself, but this should be done in a way that people find easy to understand.
Our society has become too busy. We have also become too accustomed to multitasking. The use of texting shortcuts is altering people’s ability to identify and use correct grammar, and not for the best.
