Merriam Websters Brings Internet Slang Into the Dictionary

The vernacular born out of the Internet age is trickling into legitimate language.
Merriam-Webster has added 3,200 contextual examples and 200 entries of the most frequently searched terms into the dictionary.
Though some of the new entries are for terms you've heard of, some likely aren't.
Included in the additions are a few pieces of slang from the web.
Notable additions to the dictionary include; net neutrality, emoji, meme, clickbait, photobomb, NSFW, and WTF, the latter of which are acronyms.
