Just finished an advance copy of Because Internet by @gretchenmcc ! It’s all about Internet language and I understand so much more now about why some people use Wildly different styles online, and how the meaning varies depending on when you first started using the Internet . It’s really fascinating! Preorder: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/540664/because-internet-by-gretchen-mcculloch/9780735210936/
