Description (in English): 

@everyword is a Twitter bot that tweeted every word in the English language, in alphabetical order, one at a time, every half hour. <@everyword started its task in late 2007 and completed it in 2014. Along the way, it picked up over 100,000 followers and inspired dozens of parodies and imitations. The project, initially inspired by John F. Simon's Every Icon, was an exercise in the potential synergies of social media and experimental writing techniques extending over time: What happens when single words, invested with their own lexical context, are juxtaposed with ever-changing, personalized Twitter feeds? How does social media as a channel shape and afford the presentation of writing?
