To tag an article, a blog post, or tweet to excessive and disproportionate levels, often out of a mistaken impression that such tagging somehow improves the quality of said article, blog post or tweet.
Some Wikipedia editors totally like to tagturbate. Instead of researching and correcting a sentence that may appear dubious, they merely tag the article with "original research", "notability", and 200 "citation needed" tags. This makes the editor feel happy for a while, under a false sense of productivity, but in reality it does not improve the article or edify the reader, much as a celebrity does not become more attractive just by having a viewer masturbate to her picture.
