A few factors that they considered were, the words should have already made a mark on the language and it should be worth remembering and that it will stay in the foreseeable future.
Words such as TMI, FOMO (fear of missing out), hella, even as far as Mx., a gender-neutral honorific for those who don’t care for options such as Mr. or Mrs. had joined existing earlier additions like amazeballs, YOLO and totes.
