n. the specific elitism in which the party exhibiting such arrogance attempts to insult a social networking friend (like on Facebook or twitter) by posting an insult on the given friend's page followed by the proclaimation, "I am now going to defriend you!" or "I shall now unfollow you!" Important: the party exhibiting delitism values his own opinion above all else and intern sees his rejection as the ultimate way to insult another. Alas, as this is bizarre and irrational, the Deletist often becomes the butt of many a joke.
Normal individual's status update or tweet: "Jesus Christ! That brick I dropped on my foot really hurt!"
Person guilty of Deletism: "Jesus? You're a Christian? That means you're stupid so I shall hearby de-friend you. I'm telling you instead of just doing it because I assume you actually care about what I think and I get off on insulting people."

Alternatively:
Normal individual's status update or tweet: "Jesus Christ! That brick I dropped on my foot really hurt!"
Person guilty of Deletism: "How DARE you use the name of Christ our Lord in vain! Clearly, you're headed for eternal damnation, so I shall hearby de-friend you. I'm telling you instead of just doing it because I assume you actually care about what I think and I get off on insulting people."
