Abstract
The last decades have witnessed a growing interest in linguistic phenomena typical of spoken conversational Spanish. However, this expansion of the research field contrasts sharply with the rather limited availability of empirical oral data. As a reaction, researchers have increasingly turned to alternative databases, such as social media. This article particularly looks into the question to what extent the language used on Twitter can count as a reliable source of colloquial Spanish. In particular, it compares the profile of one of the most frequently used discourse markers in contemporary colloquial (youth) Spanish, namely en plan, on Twitter with data taken from spoken corpora (such as COLAm). The results indicate that, on the one hand, language users do turn to an expressive and subjective discourse style on Twitter, similar to how it would be found in an oral conversational corpus. On the other hand, due to its monological and asynchronous character, Twitter appears to be less suited to study phenomena related to the conversational change-of-turns structure of spontaneous data, including mostly metadiscourse functions.
