You probably know what a TweetUp is, are familiar with Retweets and may have attend a webinar, but what is a Twesume, or a Pintermission? And do you smoast too much?
After seeing that ‘Amazeballs’ make the Collins Online Dictionary, we looked up 10 ridiculous social media words. Do you think any of these will make the dictionary? We certainly hope not.
- Blaudience – A thankfully not very often used word to describe the readers of a blog – a blog audience.
- Bird of Mouth – Where did you hear about us? Via Twitter? Then you got here via Bird of Mouth.
- Nomophobia – According to a study 66% of people are worried about being without their mobile or smartphones – ‘No Mobile Phone Phobia.’
- Pintermission – Addicted to Pinterest? You might want to take a break.
- Splogs – A blog which exists just to artificially boost traffic and alter search results – a Spam Blog.
- Smoasting / Smoaster – We all know someone that loves to tell everyone how great they are via Twitter or Facebook – a social media boaster.
- Twesume – A short bio or resume/CV of 140 characters or less, which is easy to tweet and share with potential employers.
- Twoosh – A tweet that uses exactly 140 characters – we’re wondering how many people spend their time trying to achieve this?
- Twuck-up – We all love a badly thought out tweet, especially if it is a celebrity or politician – see Ed Millibands recent Twitter mishap.
- Twimposter – A frequent annoyance for famous tweeters – someone impersonating you on Twitter.
