Excuse me Mr.Bradford, would you please tell me what you mean?
I wrote a sentence and I wanted to know if this sentence is grammatically correct and natural in English. Since I'm not a native speaker, I posted this thread to hear native speakers' opinion.
I mean that twitter (with its 140-character rule) is an unnatural way of communicating. Sometimes people want to say more, sometimes less. Also, it has led to a weird kind of abbreviated English; the same thing happened (for the same reasons) when telegrams were invented. In real life "pple dnt tlk lik this @keramus".
However, in those circumstances "became a top global trend" is a relatively normal way of saying "became really trendy all over the world", which is what we'd say in normal colloquial English, or "established itself as a world-wide catchphrase" which is a more formal way of saying the same thing.
