But that is exactly what @everyword did! If you aren't one of its followers, I'll give you the low down on this historic Twitter handle.
@Everyword was created by NYU professor Adam Parrish, who was actually mocking Twitter a bit when he created the account seven years ago. The handle is a Twitter-bot and it tweets a word in the dictionary every 30 minutes since its conception on November 30, 2007. That's it. Just the word in alphabetical order!
Somehow, this simple concept has fascinated people and @EveryWord has 98k followers. And now that the end of the dictionary is coming near, people are scared, sad and curious what will come of @everyword when it gets through the Z's!
They should have seen it coming, its a moment that has been seven years in the making!! But what is pretty interesting to me about this whole story is the shift in attitude that the @everyword founder has had since the beginning of this experiment. He told The Guardian in a recent interview:
"I was a Twitter skeptic. The way I saw it, people were posting meaningless things, totally out of context. I wanted to satirize the brevity of Twitter messages would be to make a bot that would post individual words. But now I see Twitter differently. It's kind of a magical writing experiment, and it's amazing that so many people participate."
I like that he's come around to appreciating the "magical writing experiment" that is Twitter!! But as for now, we only have a few short days (hours??) until the seven year saga of @everyword ends!! We are already on "ZY" words! Have you ever followed this handle? What do you think it will tweet after the last word??
