A term used to tell someone of a rumour or to pass on information, but without wanting to be identified as the source of such rumour or information. Like "Word on the Streets", but used mostly when your source of information is a social networking platform. However, can also be used otherwise as an alternative to "Word on the Streets". Relevant in today's fast moving, all pervading and progressive digital era.
