What's With The "Goblin Mode"?
Goblin mode, which was first used on Twitter in 2009, is described as "unapologetically self-indulgent, lazy, slovenly, or greedy behavior, typically in a way that rejects social norms or expectations." In 2022, as people awoke in fear from the COVID-19 pandemic's forced lockdowns, the term gained popularity.
Goblin mode, metaverse, and the hashtag IStandWith were the three finalists chosen by Oxford Languages lexicographers, but this is the first time a phrase has been decided by public vote.
Goblin mode was the undisputed champion despite having little popularity offline, garnering 93% of the more than 340,000 votes submitted.
