Tweets, Sexting "Unfriended" in U.S. Banned Word List

Most of the stuff on the 35th annual list of words that should be banned are obviously obnoxious but the list is kinda short. What are some words you wouldn’t mind seeing banished from the English language?

Also ripe for exile is "sexting," shorthand for sexy text messaging, a habit that has caused trouble this year for public figures from politicians to star athletes. Similarly, list makers showed distaste for tweeting, retweeting and tweetaholics, lingo made popular by users of the popular Twitter networking website.
