This is Literally a Snark

This is literally one of my biggest pet peeves.  I would swear that literally 95% of people don't know how to use it correctly.  Literally, every time I see the word, I can feel my eyes twitching.  Literally.

Anyway, if that annoyed you, check out Literally, Weblog.  It traces "literally" in all of its media over-use.

Also, here's an interesting piece from Slate: "The Trouble With Literally," which traces the etymological history of the term.
