An Academic Look at LE$BEAN

Le$bean is defined as an internet slang term because some of its characters are used as substitutes for letters.

Most "slang terms" were introduced to reduce the number of key strokes required to write the word, but since the arrival of predictive texting and keyboards on mobile devices, this efficiency is no longer required. Nevertheless, "slang terms" are still regularly used to make messages more entertaining, to express individuality, or (as in the case of le$bean) to deceive contentent moderation algorithms.

"Slang terms" differ from emoticons because they are not pictorial representations.
