It just seems to be getting more and more prevalent, to the point where I’ve been hearing it in serious newscasts now (things along the lines of “<famous person> tweeted that he will be doing <project>” or “A local Japanese family were relieved when relatives in Japan tweeted that they were alive and well” or “The prime minister’s press secretary sent a tweet to verify that the women’s underwear found under his bed were most definitely not his.”)
It’s just a stupid term. I get that the service is called Twitter. Great. I don’t use it, but I get that a lot of people do. But every time I hear “tweeted” I want to kick a baby. Or a bird. Or a baby bird.
Anybody with me?
