The most overused words on social media

Reading through my twitter feed, I suddenly became aware of the repetitious status updates. I am ashamed to admit I’m guilty of it myself! What are these words….?

They are ‘lovely’and ‘great’ along the lines of:

“Had a lovely afternoon doing XYZ”

“Thanks for a lovely XYZ”

“What a great start to the day”

“Had a great meeting with … “

It reminded me of my English teacher telling us to find alternatives to the word ‘nice’ – well those alternatives appear to be ‘lovely’ and ‘great’! So here are some different words to use. My challenge to you is to use them every time you are about to type one of those boring words. Have I missed any? Let me know!
