You heard it here first. I'm defining three new words:
1) Twescalate - to over-hype something or create a controversy by causing a massive tweet / retweet of a piece of information. For examples, see "Gottfried, Mark" and "Ref comment." Also, see "Spike Lee" and "Zimmerman Address" - or "Southern Miss Band"
2) Twescalation - the act of tweeting with the hope / desire of creating a mountain out of a molehill: See "Bike mom and Burger King Drive Thru"
3) Tweester - the state of outrage, indignation, disbelief, and generally over the top response of "twitter nation," thereby making it seem that a vast number of ALL Americans feel the same way: See "Health care decision, oscar nominations, wiki leaks, tot mom, etc." Alternate: "Atwitter"
"Tweerping" -- Maryland fans using social media after the refs stola another game from them.
Eat Mor Jonny.
My favorite new word related to social media is vaguebook (v), often seen in its participial form vaguebooking: to complain in a status about how an unspecified party has wronged you, with the aim of garnering sympathy from friends who always take your side.
Often goes something like this:
Some ppl just dont know how to treat a woman. smh!
</avalanche of sympathetic comments about how she's too good for him>
A movie is not about what it's about; it's about how it's about it.
Some questions cannot be answered

Twit: one who cares too much about the twitter.
You must spread some comments around before flaming the Moderators again.
Like I give a tweet about any of this.
