The Oxford English Dictionary has a rule that “a new word needs to be current for ten years before consideration for inclusion”.

Chief Editor John Simpson, who made the announcement in a blog spot that, OED breaks its rule to match the tech savy race and adds the words  ‘Big data’ and ‘Tweet’ to the dictionary.

From quarterly update of the Oxford English Dictionary:

The word “tweet,” appearing both as a noun and a verb, was added to the dictionary.

The OED got on board with other tech lingo. The words “crowdsourcing,” “e-reader,” “mouseover,” “stream” and “redirect” “Flash mob,” 3D printer” and “live-blogging” also made their entry in the century old dictionary.
