SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Here's something for your Twitter feed: "Tweet" has earned a spot in the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary.
The term, used both as a noun and a verb, is among more than 100 other new words in the venerable dictionary publisher's newest edition.
Some other newcomers include "helicopter parents" and "boomerang child," and the folk- and country-influenced music genre known as "Americana."
Merriam-Webster's president says he considers "fist bump" among the stars of the new words.
