Spelling

One of my biggest pet peeves is when people misspell anything. I understand if someone misspells a big word that most people don’t even use in their everyday vocabulary, but if someone misspells something like president, it makes me angry.

The President of our country, or should I say “precendent” frequently uses twitter to communicate with people. This is fine with me, seeing as technology is huge now and almost everyone is on twitter. However, if someone with such a high social status uses  twitter, they should be able to spell things correctly.

When Trump first came into office, his first tweet read “I am honered to serve you, the great American People, as your 45th President of the United States!” which he deleted shortly after. I don’t know about you, but it bothers me that our President doesn’t have the decency to use spellcheck. 

This topic hadn’t been brought to my attention until I read Allan Fallow’s article which talked about Trump’s spelling errors. I had no idea that he made so many spelling errors, and it bothered me. It may not seem like a big deal to most people, but personally, spelling errors are vexing and unprofessional. Everyone makes mistakes, but these simple mistakes can be fixed by taking two seconds out of your day to read something before you i publish it for everyone to see.
