*** UPDATED TO REMOVE STAR WARS: EPISODE VII SPOILERS ***

Welcome to PreTweet, a new tool designed to help you compose social media updates without sounding like everybody else.

We’ve surveyed hundreds of people – friends, journalists, social media “experts” and asked them to list the words and stock phrases that they’re sick of seeing on Facebook and Twitter.

We’re just as guilty of using some of these words and phrases as anyone. Sometimes they’re appropriate, some things really are “amazing” and some articles really are a “must-read”, but nothing – NOTHING – has ever been “hilaire”.

Simply copy and paste a social media update into the box below and any phrases that are in our database will be crossed out, giving you a chance to rethink whether or not you really want to tell the world that you are off on your “holibobs”.

The fast nature of social media means the list will change constantly, and we’ll be updating it daily. If you have any suggestions, please email us at pretweet@houstonpr.co.uk
