Twitter Glossary

I like using twitter to keep up with my favorite blogs and let my many awesome extremely intelligent and remarkable fans know that I have a new blog post to annoy them er entertain them with. One thing that I love about twitter is its 140 character limit. This forces me to send little short blurbs that hopefully get to the point. Usually these points are whining. Twitter is great for whining. I like complaining about the 70 degree and sunny weather out here in southern california to my twitterati buddies just to confuse and anger them. Nothing better than receiving a 140 character profanity laced tirade. In twitter when you send a message its called a tweet. I'm sure they would have called it Tweeter if it wasn't for that stupid electronics store. When i send a message its called a twit. Tweets are important my twits are usually stupid and pointless like having a 162 game baseball regular season. If you're new to twitter here is some lingo used in the twitter world.

Twitthore- basically a person that sends more that 200 messages on twitter a day and updates their status every five seconds. A twit whore if you will.

taking a twit- people that take the what are you doing a little too seriously and leave the status of their current bathroom activities.

twatters- people like me who like to bitch on twitter. "my dog died today" boo hoo you twatter. Just kidding thats pretty sad.

twitty- people who can be witty and amuse via twitter. If you are fortunate enough to have some of these as friends bleed them for all the entertainment you can get.

Twitting the hay- When twitter decides to crap out and have technical problems preventing tweets from being sent. (kinda like right now)

That is some funny twit.

Bridget said...

I am so upset that I didn't get to say that is some funny twit! Buffalo is definitely twitty or at least a quick twit.

I hope you keep this as a running commentary...this is some good stuff! :)

ssgreylord said...

Am I a total twit for not using Twitter?

Jennifer said...

I loved your funny post but just don't see the attraction of twitter. I use almost every social networking site but have no desire to twitter, have a quick twit or to become a twitter whore. What is so great about it?

Sogeshirtsguy said...

Buffalo and Bridget thanks for your twitty comments. Ssgreylord and jennifer I like twitter because you can keep track of what your blog buddies are up to and get to know them more on a personal basis. You might share blog ideas, tips etc and you might find some new blogs or get new readers from people coming across your blog.

john b said...

@sogshirtsguy - Thanks for explaining a little about Twitter. I can see using it for finding some new blogs, exchanging ideas and tips, etc. I'm with you. Other than that, I don't see much value and it just seems like one more thing to suck even more out of my already limited time!

David Tamayo said...

So would twenty twitthore twatters taking a twit in the forest be considered tweet or twitty? =)

Pand0ra Wilde said...

I don't get a lot of reaction to my tweets--does that make me full of twit?

blogengage said...

way tooo funny! I gave up on twitter after signing up! See the whole idea of this is to remain active way too often! I just have the time1 I like old school social networking where you submit an article and your done!

myktoronto said...

I have twitter and so far I've never even tried it...but maybe I will now cuz I've had a good look at your awesome set of twits.

HEALTH NUT WANNABEE MOM said...

I need to sign up for twitter and start sending twits. You are something else.

Claire said...

Twatters could be confused with twunts :)

"140 character profanity laced tirade" lol!

Mother Theresa said...

What about a twit for a twat? That just popped into my mind, no idea why. I've just started twittering and I haven't quite gotten the hang of it. I now have one more thing to update everyday and my 2D life is starting to take over. Must do something. :-O

MouthGirl.com said...

I love "twitterverse" for some reason I find that really comical. That's why I say it, lol. When I started using twitter I was excited about it's potential to grow MouthyGirl - so far so good and I'm getting to converse with a lot of really awesome bloggers like yourself. :)

BusyDad said...

Twitter is the most pointless thing I can't stop doing. And I do a lot of pointless things. Thanks for the primer!

Sandy C. said...

WOW! I had no idea. I learn something new everyday ;)

I'm such a Twitter addict. Does that make me a Twit-a-holic?

Kelly said...

laughin' my arse off..
twitter..haha gotta love it.

Huckdoll said...

Another funny, Tim. You're brilliant. You should tweet more often :)

nepspeed82 said...

I've got another lingo to add.

nitwit - people who aren't into twitter yet (like me). :)

Maureen said...

So I guess I can formally state I am not a Twit.

Yet.

But, dang, I probably will jump on the ol' bandwagon for yet ANOTHER way to waste, er spend my online time...

Thanks for the glossary. It will definitely come in handy for soon-to-be-Twits like me.

Tenakim said...

first time here (I came from the anthill)-I guess you could call be a twirgin?

Kimba The White Lioness said...

Twitter is my latest addiction! It fulfills my need for quick bursts of getting my thoughts out there - with limited time in my schedule!

=)

Antman said...

Yup! That about says it all. I have twitter block quite often, for whatever that is worth! I made that one up, do I get an award?
