I've recently started a new hashtag on Twitter called #WepaWednesday.
"Wepa", pronounced Weh-Pah, is a spanish slang word, which I believe originated with Puerto Ricans. It was originally used when dancing Salsa as an exclamation. It was a way to voice excitement or a great salsa dance move. It is now more mainstream and used in various ways to mean various things, like cool or awesome. It can also be used to show various emotions, like excitement or even surprise. Ultimately the word's inflection and definition can be changed by the way it is utilized in a sentence.
Several Tweeters have asked me about the meaning of "Wepa". I would like to create a post explaining the term. As a Puerto Rican I use the word in various ways but would like to find out how you use the word "Wepa" and what it means to you! Also, out of curiousity (yes I am nosy!) please let me know if this is the first time you have heard of the word.
Leave me a comment with your responses! FYI: I will make sure to give you credit in the post! Thanks!
