Slices of Life: Swapping symbols for words: #trending

'At' - the two-letter combination originates from humble beginnings as a simple word that required a quick couple hits to the computer keyboard. I grew up knowing when to use 'at' within a sentence (but never at the end of one). The tiny word stayed out of the limelight and didn't get a whole lot of attention - until the pint-sized preposition made the transition from word to symbol and suddenly @ was the place to be.
