The Modern Age Of Punctuation

  • Full stops are now considered rude in a social media setting as they denote ‘finality’, which is the opposite of the infinite digital scroll seen everywhere.
  • Replying with a small word followed by a full stop (sure. ok.) in a digital conversation(like iMessage) feels abrupt and inconsiderate.
  • Colons and brackets have a new purpose: capturing the emotions and feelings of the writer to denote context.
