He/she (and you) are behind the times. The new buzz word (related to "literally" anyway) is "legit." As in, "That lady backed into my car. Legit." Or even, "He legit ate the whole thing." Granted, it's more related to "no s***", but, you know, what evs.

I thought "legit" went out with "too legit to quit!" (2 legit 2 quit!)

If I was more motivated, and could write, and had time on my hands, and...anyway, I would love to write a book on colloquialisms and the blazing speed with which they are adopted and spread in our social media-fixated world. I have made mental note of their coming (and going) over the last 20 years or so. My wife has been a heavy user since I've known her, which probably jump-started my interest.

Have someone write a twitter novel, in 100 or so chapter installments of 140 characters each. The modern, social-media version of a Dickensian novel.
