Pronounced "atting"

The act of placing unnecessary @ signs (a la Twitter) before people's names on non-Twitter social networking websites, blogs, etc. when responding to their comments.

Using the @ as an affectation.
"Yes, @Fred, I think that's a great idea. @Donna, what do you think?"

Dude . . . why are you @ing? Just use names!
