I find nothing about using Tweet as a verb in the "Guidelines for Use

Did you read the last paragraph?

All that is, however, totally at odds with Twitter's stated view:

http://support.twitter.com/entries/77641

The last paragraph follows.


Other Things to Know about the Twitter Trademarks

The Twitter name, logo <http://twitter.com/about/resources/logos>, Twitter T, Tweet, and Twitter bird <http://twitter.com/about/resources/logos> are trademarks of Twitter, Inc. in the United States and other countries. Please do not use the Twitter marks in your avatar or business icon. Please remember to capitalize the T in Twitter and Tweet! For further information about use of Twitter’s name and trademarks, please contact trademarks at twitter.com.



I do, however, find a lowercase use of tweet as a verb in their FAQ:

https://support.twitter.com/groups/32-something-s-not-working/topics/119-tweet-dm-problems/articles/20169444-i-can-t-tweet-from-the-web

That is an apparent typo by a support person and that post also includes, "Tweet."
