Whether you’re a surgeon, surfer or surrogate mother, you have your own jargon. Tweeters are no different like their twitter vocabulary.

Some words, like hashtag or Twiends, are totally alien to anyone not using the platform. Other words, like favorite or trend, have been in dictionaries for ages but take on a whole new meaning in Twitter
