Our arsenal of apps and sites grows daily, and our vocabulary grows with it. To move Impact 89FM’s end of the year lists along, Exposure host Abbie Newton breaks down eight of the most common phrases we’ve heard this year in regards to the media that connects (or tethers) us all together.

8. “Wait, do I follow you on Instagram?”

Most frequently said by drunk people at 2:30am who forgot that they’re friends with their mom, aunt, and 8 year old cousin on SnapChat.

Just remember that the Library of Congress archives every tweet, so when you’re saying something’s twitter worthy, you’re also saying that it’s worthy of the Library of Congress.
