A term used to describe a person who cannot engage in carefree fun or interact normally anymore because their views and behaviors have been warped from spending too much time in niche social and political bubbles online. Their entire bodies are tightly clenched all day and they are never really relaxed - they must keep vigil for anyone who fails their purity test so they can sound the alarms and give in to their repressed feral tendencies to burn you at the stake.

Their lives slowly devolve into performatively getting upset in public to bolster their credibility with other terminally online people until they have scared off every normal person in their life.

Though most frequently seen on the political left (where many of them have come to the internet to escape reality due to being emotionally frail and heavily disordered), the right has their own share of terminally online nonsense, usually manifesting as conspiracy theories and a persecution complex.
George: "Until I went on the internet, I've never heard anyone literally say 'r-slur'."

Debbie: "Have you gotten vaccinated yet?"

Terminally online is a psychological condition that occurs when someone has spent so much time online they can no longer function normally in real life.

There is no one aspect of internet usage or any particular website that makes someone terminally online; rather the condition describes the result of said usage, and becoming terminally online can be the result of nearly all online activity done in excess.

Symptoms of being Terminally Online:
-lack of social skills
-extremely esoteric political opinions
-extensive knowledge of chris chan

The term to refer to some individual whom spends their entire lifes (Or at leat a good part of them) sitting at the computer and mainly having interactions with individuals whom they don't know in real life.

The term is better used for talking about individuals who specifically spend their time in the internet, not just "gaming".

They can be typically found on platforms like "Reddit" or "X" (Formerly "Twitter"), a lot of the time they are positioned on the political left, (They are usually "Woke"), but some individuals that have been called "Neckbeards" by the internet advocate for a more traditional family model of a father, a house-working mother and children. They are characterized to love Japanese animated series (Anime), and sometimes they are pedophiles (It also happens with the "Wokes").
