Well, it is definitely official. Merriam-Webster runs the shadiest Twitter page. And by “shadiest,” we mean the realest and most hilarious page ever. You may have noticed that our country has been in a bit of turmoil lately, but one thing that’s getting us through the mess is Merriam Webster’s Twitter feed.

Since Merriam-Webster is a dictionary, it’s obviously pretty good with words. And those words have become the voice of reason.

The tweets from Merriam-Webster have been full of burns for a long time now, but it’s the dictionary’s subtle shade directed at the current administration that is catching everyone’s attention. Not only did it call out Kellyanne Conway after uttering the phrase “alternative facts”…

It constantly calls out Donald Trump for the language he chooses to use…

And once again, Merriam-Webster is playing the hero. On the day when the House is voting to replace Obamacare with the American Health Care Act, which will leave 24 million Americans without health care, Merriam-Webster chose a word of the day that best describes the general feeling of today.

We see what you did there, M.W. The tweet has caused Twitter to erupt in major applause and mad respect for Merriam-Webster and everything it stands for.


While most of Trump’s plans are out of our control, we at least have Merriam-Webster to get us through whatever lies ahead.
