If there is a technological term that annoys those people, that word would definitely be “sexting”.
A recent survey conducted in the United Kingdom, has shown that the word “sexting” topped the list of the most annoying technical term today. Sexting is defined as the sending of sexually explicit photographs or messages by mobile phone.
The survey was conducted by YouGov for Computeractive magazine. Based on its survey, the magazine found out that 24 percent of those 2,054 adults in the U.K. who responded to their poll has selected sexting as the most annoying tech word.
Taking the second place in the survey is “intexticated,” with 13 percent of the votes. ”Intexticated” means unable to concentrate while driving due to texting.
Tech words “Defriend,” “Twittersphere” and “Tweetup” rounded out the top five, respectively. Paul Allen, editor of Computeractive said he is not surprised with the result of the survey since “sexting” can really annoy people.
