Something that is sweet, almost to the point of being sickeningly so. As a derogatory descriptive, it means something that is affectedly dainty or quaint, or is way too sentimental.

In American English it often refers to a type of simple sweet pop music, but in British English it is used much more widely for things that are nauseatingly cute or precious. It comes from the way the word sweet sounds when said in baby talk.

to be obnoxiously sweet, or quaint. It comes across as being disingenuous, corny, or effeminate.

the opposite of simple, authentic and true: desperately exquisite, contrived to the point of ridiculousness, trying to so hard to be ornately exceptional that you (inadvertently) end up looking like a clown. A good example is mega-artist Matthew Barney, whose films are so self-involved and obscurely referential that they seem about to burst and disappear in a multidimensional clench. His wife Bjork also fits the frame (yes she does). Most runway fashion show pieces are also a fine demonstration of the palace of twee: preening to the most self-absorbed and aloof of the lot, completely devoid of true passion. Most "artist statements" in today's art world are also laughably twee: buzzwords and effete constipated embellishments over nothing at all. Also can mean overplayed cloying sentimentalism, artificial exaggeration of feeling, grandstanding epicness, narcissistic saturation. See again Bjork.
Evanescence (pop band) are so goddamned twee, like sucking on a lollipop made of pure nutrasweet, god I wish an elevator would fall on her throat.

someone who is adorably sweet almost too sweet, sometimes hippie like. It's also a spin-off from the indie style they like being unique but not "in your face unique".
Twee people always love to make people smile.
They usually dress mod-like and wear dresses, flowy shirts, band shirts, bows, plastic jewelry, and little kid treasures.
-Twee people are alowed to listen to anything they please! but they usually like chill music, indie rock, and techno.
girl 1: Oh my gosh did you see Marcy's dress?!?!
girl 2: I know it's so cute and mod. she totally works her twee-ness
