Language of acronyms and phonetics.

The more I see 'internet speak' translate to real life or displayed in media the more it looks like it could become indoctrinated into everyday life.
People seem to like the idea of writing in the short hand so it seems natural that language could evolve in that way.
With the global nature of the internet I could see it one day even creating some kind of universal language.
Bad news right?

I'm guilty of doing this. Instead of laughing, I'll say, "Lol" or "Lawlz"
However, I don't say, "GTG" when I have to go somewhere..

Right now I'm the kind of person that will avoid that kind of talk as much as possible even online, but 10 years ago when I first started using the internet I uses to spend so much time on chat room that it started to take over, it even got to a point where I was subconsciously writing writing internet slang even in formal writing and I'd be like "Oh crap!" and I'd have to start again. Although now day the only way it translates into real life nowadays is through an on going joke I have with this chick I go to gym with, every time she says "sweet" I say "lol", I don't know where the hell that came from, kind of random I know.
It's good to be the King!
Lol is a pretty popular thing to say nowadays >_>
I hear it quite a lot...
big up all da people from the westside crew
hate the eastside crew
I never talk in internet speak. It's called internet speak for a reason. Even when I text, I only really use two acronyms (those being Lol and Ikr?)

No one's ever used internet slang talking to me in real life. I'd probably smack them if they did. The only reason any of it exists is to make typing quicker and easier, it makes no difference when you're talking, except to make you look like a total tool.
I don't want a big car, particularly. I have no need for acreage, and I don't like the fuel bills. But I don't want a small one because they're all like supermarket own-brand cola: weedy imitations of the real thing - Jeremy Clarkson

Hopefully, I'm currently bored with the tiresome way people talk to each-other, I would prefer it if everyone spoke as though they were in a Shakespearian play but, beggers can't be choosers.
When I hear people say "lol" in real life, it makes my mind vomit.
