"I tawt i taw a putty-tat" - the propensity for twitterers to announce to the 
universe anything of the most banal detail.

"Dawn chorus" - when twitterers wake up and all spam each other over their 
morning coffees.

"bird flu" - virus/trojan sent by twitter protocol

"tweet-repeat" - when you spam the universe twice unitentionally.

Sorry - it's friday....

We are buried beneath the weight of information, which is being confused with
knowledge; quantity is being confused with abundance and wealth with happiness.
