  Original Published: 6/22/2013 The Oxford English Dictionary is acknowledging that tweeting isn't just for the birds. In its latest update, the dictionary has revamped the entry for "tweet" to include its social networking usage. It now includes this definition as a verb, "to make a posting on the social networking service Twitter." It also includes this definition as a noun, "a posting made on the social networking service Twitter." A new word normally needs to be in use for 10 years before Oxford considers it for the dictionary. But its chief editor says it made an exception this time. Oxford adds and revises entries four times a year.
