On Twit Signals
I define a “twit signal” as any tic of politicized writing that signals that the writer is a twit. A twit signal is rhetorical, not informative. The meaning it conveys is; I conform to my tiny group’s quaint customs and beliefs.
For instance, take the word “wymyn”, favored among certain radical feminists. Sure, it’s orthographic, but it’s also self-ghettoization.
Other twit signals include; “frankenfood”, “Democrat party” and “Obamunist”.
