How about the use of “impact” for those that can’t figure effect vs. affect? Impacted, impactful, etc.

"Tread"? You must be "tyred" or should that be "tired"?

Bit like the overuse of the word "Nice"...

 

Or the modern trend on faceache/social media of everything being "X saw this and they were amazed/lost it/other inappropriate superlative" only to find a load of clickbait laced with ads.... And guess what? NO PEOPLE ^&£^$ WEREN'T AMAZED/LOST IT/ETC. 

Ahem. 

My personal favourite, as a social media professional, is [FAMOUS PERSON YOU'RE ASSUMED TO LIKE] DESTROYS [FAMOUS PERSON YOU'RE PRESUMED TO HATE], and yet they always seem to be miraculously unannihilated at the end. Sometimes you'll even see the same video clip used by dueling partisans, each claiming their guy destroyed the hated foe.
