When did “Twerking” and “Selfie” enter the dictionary?

I read in the news that twerking and selfie have been added to dictionary recently. Did it give any origin? Is there any information or details about them?


They were both added to Oxford Dictionaries Online last month.

The origin of twerk is given as ‘1990s: probably an alteration of work’ and of
selfie as ‘early 21st century: from self + -ie’.
