Joy of new words: Twitskrieg

Do you like making up or discovering “new” expressions to describe new phenomena?

I love reading and finding new expressions and even making some up myself. I have some witty friends who drop witticisms into conversations. I’m the sort of nerd who often writes in a notebook new expressions I read or hear or adapt.

Now this expression may already exist – but to my knowledge, I made it up today: twitzkrieg

Ramones Blitzkreig Bop


A word to describe a campaign via twitter – a twitskrieg – inspired by the German expression for “lightning war”.  Words like Blitz and Blitzkrieg were made popular a long time after WW II – with songs such as Ballroom Blitz and, of course, Blitzkrieg Bop!




There was even a corporate band event inspired by Ballroom Blitz called Boardroom Blitz.


Aaaaaaahh the fun you can have getting creative with words.  If you have found or made up any clever new expressions – please share in the comments section below.
