What Makes Up the Name: Twitter + rant
With Twitter came a whole bunch of neologisms with the prefix tw- that make everything your're saying sound cool and plugged-in come across like you're an adorable 7 year old with overalls and a speech impediment. Twitter also birthed a million misguided, unimportant twants about some poor guy who put too much guac on a burrito and got called by a convicted prostitute or something.
Origin: Figured we'd go with the Twittionary (who knew that pormanteau even existed?) on this one. The entry was posted in late 2009.
