Modern technology has given us a whole new way of speaking. A writer for The Guardian out of the U.K. has named the best words the Internet has given the English language. Here they are:

    • avatar: a user’s alter ego or graphical representation of the user

    • hashtag: the pound sign that serves as a way to search by subject on Twitter

    • spam: junk mail

    • lol: short for ‘laughing out loud’
