‘YouTuber’ is a real word now because the Oxford English Dictionary says so

The Oxford English Dictionary has given YouTubers some career validation.

YouTuber” is among the 500 or so new words — including “Brexit” and “hackathon” — added to the OED this month.

The dictionary defines the term as “A frequent user of the video-sharing website YouTube, especially someone who produces and appears in videos on the site.”

The word dates back to 2006, and stems from “the proprietary name of the video-sharing website,” aka Google-owned video platform YouTube.

But perhaps the best part about the dictionary entry is the list of sample sentences.

“YouTuber Hugo took a selfie of himself every day from the age of 13 to the age of 19.”
