The Oxford English Dictionary has announced that the word "selfie" is the word of the year, after everyone from Rihanna to your hot next-door neighbour went crackers for it on Facebook and Instagram.

They also revealed that a close runner-up for the coveted top word spot was "twerking". So as of today, both words are properly recognised and the English language as a whole is a helluva lot sexier.

To celebrate this monumentous, literary evolution, here's a sexy twerking video from our pal Caitlin Wynters, and 15 shockingly hot Instagram girls that you should definitely follow, shamelessly getting their selfie on and making the internet explode.
