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!

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.

Someone between the ages 9-12. Too old to be a child and too young to be a Teenager. Even though they are little kids, they dress like a whore. They follow any trends and are obsessed with Disney bullshit. They have Facebook accounts, but they lie about their age saying they are 18 years old because they are not even 13 yet. These creatures can be found in grades 3-7. They are easy to spot on +13 websites. It's insulting to call a mature person between the ages 9-12 a Tween. Call them a preteen instead.
Tween number 1: LyKe OmG!!! R U GoInG 2 JaNeS 12Th?!!!!!11!!

Tween number 2: O yAh I Am. ImMa WeAr mUh ShOrTeSs SkIrT BeCuZz dAt HoT gUy In 7Th AsKeD mE oUt!!!!!!!! He ToLd MuH oVaR FB LYKe Omfg!!!!!!!1!!!

Teenager: Oh stop trying too hard to grow up! You are a Child! You supposed to watch Cartoons and Play outside.

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*

Generally a girl neither a child nor a teenager but is slammed by both because of their insecurities. Then, under constant attack are easily manipulated into the sole means of defense at her disposal, attacking her own kind. She is protected and supported by none thereby making her feel her own fears and wishes all the more acutely. Due to such thoughtless ridicule by those ready to mock, deride, taunt, and humiliate for their own benefit and solely to her expense, one of the most precious times in her life, a time to begin to know herself as a person, is squandered, not just to the girl herself but to the society and culture to which she counts herself and contributes. One of the most lethal aspects of her dilemma is the cynical, nihilistic, soul killing twaddle found to be associated with common connotations of the word tween including being regarded as nothing more than the bit of flesh between shit and fuck.
That tweener is going to get what she's asking for whether she likes it or not, heh, heh.

Girls between the ages of nine and thirteen. Generally underestimated. People think they're idiots who are just trying to be mature but really, they've been through a lot so don't bug them.
Teen: Look at those tweens over there, pretending to be cool...

Tween: ...I'm really not...
