#AtlantaSlang takes over Twitter

Atlanta slang isn't just for the streets anymore — it's for the Twitters, too.
Grouped by the hashtag #AtlantaSlang, users have been submitting their picks for the best in, well, Atlanta-specific slang.
It's unclear how the trending started: Twitter's site doesn't like loading long strings of chronological tweets. But the conversation has been going strong for a few days — and with it, a few observations:
"Finna" is a recurring favorite, submitted by several people a day, as is "shawty," "ova wit" and, at least for @KushxCupcakes, "I WANT MY ONE BITCH."
The topic has bred some contention.
Or as @Trillvness notes: "#AlbanySlang is incorrect usage of #AtlantaSlang .. *Holds head down*"
@GAFollowers, self-described as "The OFFICIAL Twitter for the state of Georgia," offered only this: "#AtlantaSlang gets way worse the more southern in Georgia you go."
And that, apparently, is that.
