If you want to scream every time you hear the word "sexting," you're not alone.

"Sexting" has been voted the most annoying new tech word added to the dictionary recently. (It means "the sending of sexually explicit photos or messages by mobile phone.")

In an online poll done for Computeractive Magazine, 24 percent of respondents picked that word as most annoying.

The rest of the top five included "intexicated" (driving while texting), "de-friend," "twittersphere," and "tweetup."
