When one writes a splurge of personal information about one's problems, deepest feelings, and so on, over electronic media, frequently to a large group of people. Often, these revelations could not be made face-to-face and/or without the assistance of a mood altering substance, such as alcohol. eMeltdowns generally result in a feeling of shame or embarrassment the following day. Recipients of eMeltdowns often feel awkward upon seeing the eMelter afterward.
A usually reserved employee might send the following eMeltdown to his or her colleagues: "I just want to let you know that if you see me crying it's because I'm going through a divorce because my wife and I haven't had sex in seven years, and is anyone interested in housing my beanie baby collection? I have over 1500 and I don't want lose them in the settlement."
