An @reply Twitter war.
In the early morning of April 14, 2009, NKOTB member Jonathan Knight (@JonathanRKnight) challenged Joey McIntyre (@joeymcintyre) to an @reply war.
Jonathan Knight tweeted to his fans during a break in the middle of the concert. Donnie Wahlberg (@DonnieWahlberg) did the same.
When the concert was over, the smack talk began with Joey saying "While Jon was smokin' on the bus I was smokin' on stage."
Jonathan soon replied "Joe was smoking cause his fire went out!"
The smack talk continued until Jonathan playfully teased Joey by saying, "Lets battle it out tomorrow on tweetstats! May the best man win!"
Jonathan dubbed the war a "TWAR":
"Good one Joe But I love you too much for our epic twitter war! I see the headlines now, NK's go to TWAR! Not gonna happen!"
At 1 am PST, when TweetStats.com reset, the war was on. Joey was in the lead at almost 2k @replies within two hours. Not long after TweetStats.com crashed.
Alas, we may never know the winner of the TWAR but we have had fun playing. The only person(s) who has suffered because of this incident would be those that manage the TweetStats site and their server. Poor thing was burned up with all the activity.
Disclaimer: This was all in fun and in no way reflects any disharmony within the group because there is none.
JonathanRKnight: "Good one Joe But I love you too much for our epic twitter war! I see the headlines now, NK's go to TWAR! Not gonna happen!"
A few hours later: "Before this Twar gets outta hand, I was kidding!"
Another arbitrary term used by a generation of tokers in Layer-De-La-Haye for joint.
"Doon, you want rough couples on this twar?"
To have a war of words with someone over the social networking site Twitter (or various other apps. that support it).
A.J.: Dude, what was up with you and Jessica on Twitter last night?
Bryan: Well if she would'nt have screwed me over, we wouldn't have had a Twar.
The Thread Without a Reason
The Thread Without a Reason (TWAR) was a discussion thread on Amazon.con which turned into a role-playing thread with regular characters, romances, fantasy and conflict.
New terms were coined that were used consistently within the thread including mushion for butt and krinch for work.
