I find it amusing how the meaning of a word can change over time and in context when something new and hot comes along. Remember when a post was a piece of lumber in the ground? Now it's a noun/verb referring to an article or something you do on a blog or social site.
The word tweet was more commonly referred to a chirping bird sound, but now, tweet is also a noun/verb depending on context in reference to a 140 character text you create on Twitter, a service which I affectionately describe as a Swiss army knife of texting awesomeness. Here's why I describe Twitter that way.
Here's examples of the word tweet in use:
- Tweet as a noun: "Did you see that tweet from Demi Moore (aka @mrskutcher) about the celebrity she's be most excited about meeting?"
- Tweet as a verb: "That is hilarious! I will tweet about the dog chewing mom's snuggie."
