Here's a little Twictionary for those of you who might be learning how to speak Twitter. I am not making these up! (The credit for many of the definitions goes to Business Week)

Tweeting- the act of typing out your comments on Twitter.

Twexting- the act of tweeting via text messaging.

Twibe- a group of Twitter users interested in a common topic.

Twitty- people who manage to be witty via twitter.

Twadd- add someone as a friend or follower.

Dweet- a tweet sent while drunk

Twired- to be so hyped up from twittering that you can't sleep.

Twoubled- feeling distressed that you don't get how to twitter. (Okay, this one I made up!)

Hope this helps any of you who are twoubled.

Omigosh, Corey, you are killing me with the Twitter thing!

I'm guess a Dweet from a Twadd who was Twired could be Twoubling :^)

But I'm still not caving. No tweeting from this twit!

Twitter? Twitter? A Disney character? I only exaggerate my ignorance slightly by saying this.
