How to Contribute

About this Project

The goal is simply to maintain the definitive vocabulary of terms used in the Twittersphere.

Term defintiions can be serious, funny, ribald, or goofy. For now, Twictionary is going to be one big wiki page.  Please add entries below as you discover or invent them.   

Who can contribute

Anyone with a Pbwiki account who requests access from the administrator.  Note: You MUST provide a note about why you want to participate so I can distinguish you from spammers and trolls.

We didn't used to require this, but as we face spammers almost every day, there's not much choice. Approval can take a few minutes to a few days, depending on email load. #Patience

If you want faster approval, send a Tweet to @shoq and tell him you requested approval already.

Example:   Yo @shoq, I just requested access at Twictionary. I am not a spam bot, I swear. Can I get access, please?
