My colleague: We're having a Tweetup before the Customer Experience Forum in NYC.
Me: Really? I thought that was frowned upon in New York. Haven't you seen The French Connection?
My colleague: Eh? Don't be so obtuse. I said "Tweet Up". It's like "Meet Up" for people who use Twitter and created an entire lingo of words with "TW" at the start, like "Tweeple" for "People" and that sort of thing.

Me: OK. I'll be sure to mention it.
My colleague: You're sure you understand what this is about?
Me: Sure, sure. I can talk Twaddle with the best of them.
