It’s easier and less time-consuming to learn spelling correctly rather than trying to get rid of bad spelling habits that were developed early on and which persist into adulthood.

Ultimate Spelling™ developer eReflect does not believe that texting has an overly negative impact on spelling and writing. However, the company believes that there should be a collective initiative to make the Internet misspelling-free. Tweets, Facebook statuses and other social media writing suffer from spelling errors, eReflect observed today. While understanding that texting and mobile-accessed social media use doesn’t lend itself to careful writing, people still ought to proofread before hitting send.

eReflect points out that abbreviations such as “thnk u” and “l8er” and acronyms like “BFN” or “BRB” are not as harmful as spelling errors that completely change the meaning of a sentence. Referring to a humorous hashtag #bookswithalettermissing that made the rounds this summer, featuring well-known book titles with one letter missing, eReflect noted that indeed one letter changes everything. “The Da Vinci Cod”, “A Christmas Carl” and “100 Hundred Ears of Solitude” are some entertaining examples which perfectly exemplify how important spelling is.

Twitter is a social network that suffers the most from spelling errors and typos. The increasing numbers of young people using it makes it all the more imperative for all Twitter users to choose proper English spelling when tweeting. It’s easier and less time-consuming to learn spelling correctly rather than trying to get rid of bad spelling habits that were developed early on and which persist into adulthood. For that reason, eReflect suggests that improving spelling should be an everyday task. For each piece of content created online, it's the author's responsibility to ensure it’s spellchecked.

The majority of what goes online stays online. Whatever the global internet community posts, uploads, shares, and tweets will be the archives for future generations. People will go over blog posts and Facebook timelines and get frustrated by poor spelling, or even misinterpret what was written. That’s why it’s crucial to raise awareness of how important spelling skills are and encourage people, especially the younger generation growing up with these useful and ubiquitous resources, to focus on correct word spelling.
