UPDATE: I've established that one's Word Nerd score can fluctuate rapidly, simply by tweeting a slew of 50-cent words. I jumped from 551 to 565 by doing this; had I continued, I would doubtless have made it into the 600s. I wonder who the top Word Nerd is. At a guess, it's a woman. A woman with an enormous skull that barely contains her gigantic, grotesquely pulsating brain.

You are a twitter god. Or a twitgod, perhaps?

Oh, and while we are on the subject of Twitter, interesting comment on 댓글. As far as I know, this is the standard (i.e., official dictionary) spelling of the word. It comes from 덧붙이다, which is probably where the "덧글" comes from. I have no idea where they get "닷글" from--I suspect it's just one of those wacky spellings people like to use. 답글, of course, is a different word entirely, meaning "reply" (as opposed to "comment").

Yeah, "dap-geul" was probably the only term I figured out right away when I first saw these terms. I'm assuming the "dap" is from the Chinese character in "dae-dap." With the other terms, I had no idea what was going on. "Daet," "deot," and "dat" were all strange to me. Thanks for the edification.
