Subject: Re: verb forms related to Twitter ?
>> If one can be "texted" and is "texting", then I would guess that tweet and tweeted is acceptable. So sad...
I'm still wondering where "SMS" went. I am only 35 but I recall when someone was first trying to tell me about "texts" and I went "Oh, you mean SMS!"
(granted, I may be tainted by the first job out of college working for a cellular division of a company, but still... I'm not that old, am I?)
All that said... we have a product that currently has the ability to "post a 140-character message entry". It does not send it through the Twitter service currently, but you never know what the world may bring (or how engineers will eventually decide to implement things depending on technology changes).
