Someone aged 11, 12, or 13 years old....basically in between a child and a teenager.
Most tween girls try to act like teenagers, but are still very childish.

A girl from the age 10-13. This is the age where they grow out of toys and get into boys and makeup. These girls often have self esteem issues and have lots of drama in their lives.
Tween 1- That girl over there is sooo lame!

Tween 2- Yah totally! She has like NO make up on!

Tween 3- You guys are so unsympathetic! I ran out of lipgloss!

Tween 2- OMG! Thats like so horrid!

Tweens are girls between the age of 9-12 who wear slutty clothes, wear a ridiculous amount of make-up, watch Disney channel, listen to bubblegum pop like One Direction, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift and need to get a dictionary thrown at them. They try to act all grown up when their not. I was walking down my street when a group of girls my age were walking by talking obnoxiously loud about their "boyfriends". In reality what probably happened was the guy or the girl "asked their crush out"(everyone knows about it soon) and started walking around the field together claiming their "dating" when they have never even been on a date. The "relationship" barely last a day. Not all 9-12 years olds are like that( I'm twelve). I find people who are like that just annoying therefore I try to stay away from them. I don't wear make-up at all or wear revealing clothing.
Tween 1: omg did u hear jake asked carly out yesterday, there lik tots adorable.
Tween 2: ikr bt ill lok much beter wit him

Tween 3: kenzie said i was a slut. am i a slut? *is wearing a crop top with booty shorts. Also has her faced caked in make-up*

Coming from an 11 year-old girl's point of view, this is what a tween is.

This word mostly used to describe an 9-12 year old girl who:
-watches Disney Channel religiously
-wears more makeup than most adults
-uses excessive profanity while talking to friends, because they think they are a teenager
-only wear clothes from Justice
-gossips about what will be forgotten the next day
-either hates the latest pop boy-band or loves them, there is no inbetween
-desperately tries to be a teenager
-tries to act emo, scene, hipster, etc.
Example one:

Tween One: Oh my fucking gosh! I just lost my fucking lip-gloss!! It's the end of the world omg!!
Tween Two: OMG!! Hope you're okay! Tough luck!

Example Two:

Tween One: OMfG!! DiD u Here dat (Tween three's name) goT 2 go 2 da 1D consert!?!

Tween Two: OmFG!! ShE Dosent evin Lyk them! FaKe Fan Alert!1!!
Tween One: LOLZZ I hEARd heR PaReNtS Got divorSed!! LOLZZ FUKIN LUZeR
