Words With Friends besties can play covfefe, 50K new words

NEW YORK — The mobile game Words With Friends is adding thousands of pop culture words as part of its largest dictionary update in the game’s eight-year history.

Game developer Zynga tells The Associated Press it is adding 50,000 internet slang words, including BFF, fitspo, delish, FOMO, hangry, kween, smize, TFW, turnt, werk and yas, as well as bae and bestie.

The director of product for the Scrabble-esque game says players constantly reach out — on social media and in the game itself, which has a submission feature — with words they’d like added to the dictionary. He says Zynga gets 5,000 suggestions a day, which formed the basis of the update.
