MTV Twitter Roundup: Max Joseph Gives Word That ‘Catfish’ Is Now Merriam-Webster-Approved!

DictionaryF

“Catfish” proudly stands between “baby bump” and “muffin top” as a new dictionary addition.

Catfish, (n): a type of fish that has a large head and long thin parts that look like a cat’s whiskers around its mouth.

And now, according to Merriam-Webster, so much more! Online-love expert Max Joseph pointed out on Twitter today that a second definition of the word he and Nev Schulman helped coin — to bait an Internet user with a false identity or false information — is now officially recognized by the leading dictionary. So go ahead and throw it into your essays and papers, academics — you wield the power!

Elsewhere on Twitter this week, Heidi Montag dreamed up a huge “Hills” reunion while the success of the first “Faking Itepisode was very much a reality for star Katie Stevens. And though Chelsea Houska of “Teen Mom 2” was ready to let the games begin for her daughter, Aubree, Nia of “Free Agents” didn’t take the results of the latest elimination round lightly.

See what some of MTV’s best and brightest had to say this week!
