The use of social media is massively increased, but it has not been accompanied by the awareness of proper and polite language. As reported by the Tempo National Page, there were 476 complaints of hate speech on social media that were submitted to the Cyber Crimes of the Criminal Investigation Agency of the Police from February 23 to May 11, 2021. This hate speech is a portrait of the lack of awareness of social media users to speak politely and the lack of awareness not to neglect the rights and honours of others. Language impoliteness on social media has destructive power, not only its spread is very fast, but it even has the potential to threaten the integrity of the nation. Therefore, this paper aims to map impolite words on social media status through the use of a digital corpus. By using qualitative descriptive research methods, it was found that there are two categories of impolite forms commonly used by netizens: first, negative connotations, 153 lexemes and second, potentially impolite neutral connotations, 26 lexemes. This form mapping can be used as a trigger so that social media users are aware of sorting, choosing, and using diction correctly.
