A (partially) anonymous, popular Twitter user who has nothing else going for them. Twelebs live for RTs and ":''''D"s from their followers as they tweet ignorant, sometimes funny and mostly offensive content all in the name of retaining their Tweleb status. Every Tweleb's avatar change is welcomed with dozens of "Avi appreciations" from their followers, to which they're usual reply is something like: "Wow. Humbled." They are easily recognisable by their amount of followers on Twitter (usually 5000 or more). Their Twitter names are usually their Instagram name or a name promoting the latest cool kid gathering e.g: #coolkidgathering15Oct!!!

Though many of them aren't bad people, they live pretty mediocre lives and for most being a Tweleb is probably as good as it'll ever get for them.

Examples of Twelebs:

A grown-ass man who still lives with his Mom but still hasn't gotten that Diploma that's taking him at least 5 years (and counting) to complete because he is too busy chasing "ez'weyi".

A beyond average girl who has a Tumblr, dresses like Solange, has a septum piercing, wears dark lipstick and portrays herself as a "feminist". Usually looks amazing on Instagram but in real life looks like "ubhontsi."

A flaming gay man who lives for Beyonce. His mouth is either full of opinion or full of your boyfriend.
Basic girl 1: "Whooooo Choza, did you see @_____ tweet about going to #coolkidgathering15Oct?"

Basic girl 2: "Yes chom! I'm so going! I can't wait to see my favourite tweleb there!!"
