Twitter nomenclature & my faves thus far…

…this’ll have to be quick because I left my husband sitting on the porch so I could sneak in a blog entry. Obsessed? Yes.

TWITTER TERMS *

Twitter: (noun) A social networking website. See Wikipedia’s definition for more info because I’m short on time (see paragraph one).
(verb) The act of sending a Twitter message. Sure, I’d love to meet for coffee. Twitter me!

Twitterer or Tweeter: (noun) One who twitters. She’s such an obsessed tweeter. She left her husband sitting on the porch so she could blog about the definition of “tweeter”.

Tweet: (noun) A Twitter message. S/he sent me this tweet: “Blah, blah, foo…”.
(verb) The act of sending a Twitter message I will tweet you later...

Twittering: (verb) The act of sending a Twitter message or Twitter messages. Geez, Scoble has been Twittering his face off lately!” [1], [2]

Twitterverse: (noun) The entire Twitter user base/community.

Here are my favorite tweets thus far. Don’t judge Twitter based on my faves — they are just the comments I found entertaining/interesting. I’ll write a blog entry this weekend about some super cool Twitter inspired business connections that I experienced this/last week that aren’t shown in my favorite tweets link.

* Infused with blog author’s interpretation based on how she’s heard the terms used in the live web.
