The urban Twictionary: how to tweetup, twurvey, and twantrum on Twitter

Did you know that the act of being addicted to Twitter is referred to as being ‘attwicted’?

So says, an online Twitter dictionary and independent guide to Twitter-related words, acronyms and phrases that readers can vote up or down, according to whether they agree with the description.

Marketo used Twittonary’s content to create this infographic, although they missed some juicy input from the original source, such as:

Bulltwitters – Tweeple (Twitter users) who embroider their Tweets with bulltwit (self-explanatory)

Drunktwittering – similar to drunk dialing, just drunk posting on Twitter

Geotweet – tracks the geographical location of the most recent tweets

Mistweet – a tweet one later regrets

Poetweet – a poem that appears in the shape of a tweet; the writing of ‘poetwee’.

And if you’re a smarty-pants with a great idea for a new Twitter-related word, why not add your own?
