Originally a twit was a person who annoys or "twits" others. Not unlike other tw words (twaddle, twat, twerp, etc.) and rhymes with nitwit

Now comes "twitter" and twit takes on a whole new definition. It is still someone who annoys others or "twits" them. But now it is someone so infatuated with twitter and their tweets that when not twittering they are talking about twitter and tweets. A twit is someone who has lost the ability to communicate face to face. Someone lacking interpersonal skills.
In person he's a twit.

TWITs stands for 'Teenage Women in Their Thirties' and refers to 30-something women who have extended their adolescence, as well as those who, after starting a family, have entered a second teenage lifestage. The poster girls might be Pink, Victoria Beckham and Gwen Stefani.
As noted by Australian social researcher Mark McCrindle (www.mccrindle.com.au), the popularisation of lifestyle segments began in the 1980’s most notably with the Yuppies (Young Urban Professionals) and then the DINKs (Double Income, No Kids). The 1990’s introduced us to the SNAGs (Sensitive New Age Guy) and the WAGs (Wives And Girlfriends –notably of sporting stars). Other recent labels include KIPPERS (Kids In Parents' Pockets Eroding Retirement Savings), NETTELs (Not Enough Time To Enjoy Life), the Downagers, the Silver Stylers and the Boomerang kids.

In Singapore terms, it means teens who try to act cute, wear like the jap kids do, with all the leggings and stuff.

And most of all they can't fucking seem to type proper english.

Most of them are the street punks who think that joining gangs and gangbanging other people are so cool.

Now they're trying to act emo with all the mascara and the communist cap!
