Definitely vs Defiantly – Funny tweets that completely lost their meaning.

Misspelling the word “definitely” as “defiantly” has the hilarious effect of completely changing the meaning of the sentence. Just so we’re clear on the actual definitions of these words:

  • Definitely: in a clear and definite manner; unambiguously.
  • Defiantly: rebelliously: in a rebellious manner; “he rejected her words rebelliously”.

For example, saying “I will defiantly buy a hat” is kind of like saying “I will rebel against the system by purchasing a hat!”

This is where Twitter’s search feature brings in the hilarity:
