Scrabble has added over 6,500 words to the official Collins Scrabble Word List, and many of them are internet slang. According to Collin's head of language content, Helen Newstead, “Dictionaries have always included formal and informal English, but it used to be hard to find printed evidence of the use of slang words. Now people use slang in social media posts, tweets, blogs, comments, text messages — you name it — so there’s a host of evidence for informal varieties of English that simply didn’t exist before.”
