    Default Grammar Matters, even on Twitter

    President Trump really needs to hire a Tweet writer.

    Did Donald Trump really mean to say this?
    2 Peter 1:5 Because you have these blessings, do all you can to add to your life these things: to your faith add goodness; to your goodness add knowledge; 6 to your knowledge add self-control; to your self-control add patience; to your patience add devotion to God; 7 to your devotion add kindness toward your brothers and sisters in Christ, and to this kindness add love.

    I counted a dozen mistakes in this one post, alone. I suspect you would probably give him the wrong spelling of, "me."

    How do we know he hasn't hired a tweet writer?
    We seek him here, we seek him there,
    Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.

    Yes, truly a full 12. (And it could be more. I gave you a "pass" on two that might have been questionable.)

    There were four in your last post.

    I agree to an extent. I don't feel the need for perfect punctuation, but the constant use of short hand when typing on a keyboard or just a total lack of the English language from a person that speaks it as their primary language is hard to deal with for me. Sometimes i literally can't figure out what they are saying.

    of course it also depends on which "English" language you use,the American version or the original England Version,because say someone says I like my local "habadashery"(sorry even the auto dictionary can't spell it!)
    you could think wait I thought they spoke english,not knowing that some words like that mean things similar to our words here in America,"habadashery" means a men's clothing store in England" where as we here in America would just call it a clothes store so grammar and punctuation aren't the only difficulties when communicating online!
    If you don't believe in true love then please don't tell me not to believe in it because I believe it to be real.

    I find your statement extremely hurtful. I have always struggled with my speech and that includes writing, speaking, and grammar. Mine has to do with the fact I couldn't hear very well as a kid and as I developed it came out in school. So please don't judge someone about the way they put sentences together. I was called retarded and never amount to anything besides stay at home cooking and cleaning. Well, I ended up proving them wrong.
    I choose to honor God by inspiring people. How do you honor him?........

    I believe grammar is somewhat being overrated by some folks. I think some of the grammar movement people are being awfully close to pedantry at times. What some people label bad grammar is another person's idiomatic language. It can say a lot about where people are from, their social position etc etc.

    I think it is wonderful whenever people dare write like they speak. Me,on the other hand, I'm slowly evolving into a more boring and correct way of expressing myself.
