gwitter

A Gwitter is someone who ghost-writes twitter updates for a celebrity who (A) can’t be bothered, (B) can’t be trusted not to go “off-message,” or (C) can’t type as many as 140 characters on a phone.

Dude, President Obama just sent a tweet about Autism Awareness!

Sorry to burst your bubble, but that’s just his gwitter.

UPDATE: So everyone thought that this post fell into the 5% of humor [attempts] that appear here. But here’s  a revelatory story describing Pres. Obama telling Chinese students that he has never used twitter:

Obama was asked by a student, “Do you know about the great firewall and should we be able to use Twitter?” His reply: “I have never used Twitter but I’m an advocate of technology and not restricting internet access.”

In one ad-hoc  poll, 20% of people thought he was writing himself at least sometimes. Nope: gwitter all the way.
