The Words That Popped in 2013 - WSJ.com

Excerpt from an interesting perspective on the year in words
"Where better to start than with the words we use for online chatter? Since the way we converse with each other electronically is very much in flux, the metalanguage we use to talk about such talk is changing too. Those keeping track of the latest Twitter trends, for instance, would have noticed the rise of the "subtweet": Short for "subliminal tweet," it is the equivalent of talking behind someone's back, tweeting about a person without including his or her Twitter handle."
