Charles,
Something I only did once and will never repeat... clicked on a 'trending topic'. OMG, I can't stand that much stupidity in my stream. Now, I simply stick to the brilliant people I follow, and click on their nerdy hashtags. That part of twitter scares me.

troma,
I can understand that... I frequently make the mistake of typing 'and' when I meant 'an'.


Sometimes I think autocorrect adds the "d".

*blink*  And the worst (or best, depending on viewpoint) I run into is the frequent use of "rouge" instead of the less-ruddy "rogue": rouge elephant; rouge annotation scales; dapper looking rouge; a rouge doing a little second-story work.

What's iOS? :smileywink:

 

But honestly, I think it's the autocorrect in MS Word (or at least Outlook - I find myself deleting that stupid 'd' all the time)
