My Oppinion

Internet slang is a good positive in some ways. But also a big negative. The usage of internet slang can effect to usage of language in speech and writing of many. I think it is a good use to have for texting in limited space and for a quick response. People should understand the boundaries of using “chat-speech”. If you are having a conversation and all of a sudden the person you are talking to says “LOL”, you kinda want to hit them in the head with a brick. It is annoying when people useing internet slang is their speech.
