Twitter Makes Lolcat an Option Under Languages

by Brandon Russell | February 8, 2013

Twitter is hip to the cool kid lingo. Rather, the lolcat speak cuz its kewl. A new option under Twitter settings will turn a beta version of lolcats language on, essentially turning your feed into one big meme. Gud 1. We are laughing.

The most obvious changes when switching the language to on is everything is capitalized and spelled in that quirky lolcat way. “HOO 2 FOLLOW” and “MOAR CHANGES” are just a few examples. Obviously there’s no value here, and anyone who turns it on will probably just as quickly switch it off. It doesn’t affect your actual posts, only the parts Twitter has control over.

But the option is there, because why not? It’ll elicit a few good laughs. Maybe change your friend’s Twitter language to lolcat and see what happens. That’ll show them.
