This blog is specifically for my Twitter followers to explain a trending topic I created called #1wordwednesday. The concept is simple: On Wednesday, just use ONE WORD to express yourself.
Why clutter up the Twitterverse with so much white noise? Why say it in 140 characters when you can just as easily express yourself with one word?
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS about #1wordwednesday

So you’re saying #1wordwednesday doesn’t make any sense?
Duh. What rule says everything has to make sense?
Then why do this? I don’t get it!
Hey, what generation are you? Did your father serve in the Civil War?
Will one person’s word trigger off a round of “word association?”
Sometimes that happens. If it happens, it happens.
But I love talking! I can’t just express myself in one single word!
Discipline, grasshopper! #1wordwednesday is the ultimate stripped-down haiku. Think of it as poetry and you will fly.

Will #1wordwednesday ever become a Top Ten Trending Topic?
Probably not, unless Justin Bieber @justinbieber or Ashton Kutcher @aplusk join us.
Are there any prizes for best single word?
Why not? All prize donations graciously accepted.
