On the internet, misspellings are very common. Surprisingly, it’s not always a bad thing. Some people intentionally misspell words to avoid being detected or censored. Others do it to save time and characters. These misspellings have become their own unofficial standard, and now, if you get them wrong, they look “misspelled.”
Moreover, on platforms like Twitter and Instagram, people are using spelling to represent their spoken dialects more, according to Lauren Squires, a linguist from Ohio State University.
Twitter is a special case where people often type quickly, assuming that their mistakes will go unnoticed. However, WordTips decided to be the one to count the common spelling mistakes on Twitter worldwide to find out who misspells certain words the most. The maps below summarize the results.
