A Twittervention the act of confronting someone who goes overboard with their status updates on social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace, when it would be more appropriate to use a social messaging site such as twitter, or a blog. In some cases, it may be necessary to consult a trained twitterventionalist, and be prepared to give the ultimatum to revoke their friend status if their addiction is not addressed.
Jim: Angela updates her Facebok status so much I can’t stand it. I told her about Twitter but she just would not listen so I blocked her updates.
Ben: Blocking isn’t going to help. We have to stage a Twittervention.
