Twitter Talk – Twitter Related Words

Twitter termsTwitter Abbreviations – Terms

So, you are new to Twitter. As I once was, I totally understand the frustration that one can have when you start seeing terms, abbreviations and words that you never seen before. To assist you in your future tweeting, and most importantly, to save those 140 characters from being used unwisely,  I figured that it is appropriate and helpful to have a list of Twitter related words. By all means this list is not complete, and as I come across with newer terms, I will be including them in this list. If you are aware of any Twitter terms that are not yet included in this list, please help it grow by leaving them here in the comments area. I will update the list accordingly.
