Word Nerds salvage quotes from websites such as Myspace, Twitter, Facebook, and public blogs. Word Nerds tend to be gamers who have tired of Geo Cashing and Easter Egg Collecting. In the newly created underground following games focused on the unusual online writing styles found in social networking sites and blogs gamers "collect" the "words" of random writers and compete for the largest, most complete storage page.
The Word Nerds created the largest known collection of sci-fi quotes found from users writing on Myspace and Twitter.
