On Thursday, Twitter announced that it was testing its “edit” button. While the news delighted users, the next day they were busy with something else related to the app.
Twitter’s latest trend has taken the world by storm, and even US President Joe Biden, cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar and the space agency NASA have joined. Right now, the biggest buzz on Twitter is the on-word tweet, with many personalities and organizations condensing their career/brand description into a single word.
As more people hop on the bandwagon, here’s a look at some of the famous one-word tweets that are wowing microblogging app users:
This trend is believed to have been started by Amtrak, the passenger rail service that serves most of Canada and the United States. On Thursday, the railway service provider posted a tweet with only the word “trains”.

It is not yet known whether the tweet in question was a mistake made by an intern or a deliberate attempt to gain attention on social media. But it caught on right away as brands and famous people started embracing the trend.
NASA, known for its stunning images of galaxies, also jumped on the trend.

Microsoft Windows wrote “Windows”, of course.

The trend has received mixed reactions from users. Many loved the trend.
Others found it irritating.
It really annoys me when people say a word and then just say it. ‘That’s it. That’s the tweet.” Please have the confidence to write just one word.
