Learned new expressions today:Twintern and Tword
If you are a fan of new words and new expressions (as I am) – you’ll dig posts about “new” words and expressions.
Some of these expressions may have been around for a while – but I will share these expressions as I learn of them – figuring that these expressions may be “new” to you too.
Twitter has created so many new expressions – some, in my opinion, are better than others. Some sound better because the TW- prefix works well and sounds good.
Twintern “sounds right” and describes interns who work for organisations and are give the job of looking after the social media – especially Twitter and Facebook. Bosses often think things like “these young people should know about twitter – they can look after our company twitter”
I found this term on one of my favourite sites for new words – Wordspy:
Another expression I thought was amusing was Tword – describing the phenomenon when people try to create a trendy twitter word by just adding TW to and existing word – like TW +word + tword.
This was a Tword that grabbed my attention from the many twords on:
If you like making up words, feel free to add your creations in the comments below.
I love making up Twords like Twirting – flirting on twitter
and inTwigue – creating twitter message that intrigue
