Why are individual posts on twitter called tweets? Wouldn't the singular of twittering be a twit? How is that a tweet?

We will add this to the long list of human behaviors Rob's does not get.

It has to do with birds; the plural of a birdy tweet is twitter.

twit⋅ter [twit-er]
1. To utter a succession of small, tremulous sounds, as a bird

There, now you can take that off your list of human behaviors you don't understand!

So, why don't you join the party at Twitter already?! Drink the Kool-Aid! ;)

Jules- telling me that twitter is the plural of tweet is suppossed to make me feel better about human behaviors? :);)

Tammy- Now now, some folks say the same thing about bloggers!

As to where I have been- just running out of blog worthy things to post about. :(
