Hello, TechWR-L-ers,

Iâm editing a doc where someone capitalized âTweetedâ. Iâd say that the verb form would be âto tweetâ, lower case, and the logical past tense would be âtweetedâ. I canât see any reason to capitalize the verb form â thoughts?

And setting aside the inherent auditory silliness of this particular question, are there any âstandardsâ or âreferencesâ that provide usage guidelines for new technologies/words of this sort?
