A status update or tweet that gives half information about a potentially catastrophic event in a persons personal life, that causes others to respond with urgency even though they have no idea what happened. Both components are required: the narcissist who teases the information to draw lots of attention and the sympathy whores who take the bait.
Facebook status update: "Just got out of the hospital, I can't believe what happened to me."
Debra: "OMG, what happened?"
Sue: "Are you okay? What happened?"
Sally: "I'm here for you as always"
Jan: "I'm praying for you and your family"
Joe: "Out with the story already, stop it with the narcissympathy."

Initial Tweet: "Fingers cross, waiting on my test results."
Debra: "OMG, what happened?"
Sue: "Are you okay? What happened?"
Sally: "I'm here for you as always"
Jan: "I'm praying for you and your family"
Joe: "That sounds kind of personal. But I guess you must have needed your narcissympathy fix."
