When a popular social media app clearly indicates that you have an unread notification, only to reveal there are no new notifications. The only people affected by this are people that never get mentions or RTs, because important people always have hundreds of unread messages at any given time. The Phantom message is a technique the service uses to make you feel popular, even though nobody reads your lame-ass tweets.
Tim: My twizzler is blowing up. Never mind, just another phantom notification.

the temporary high achieved when you receive an abnormally large number of facebook notifications

Note: the notification can be due to real activity on your profile (such as a picture comment or wall post), fake activity on your profile (such as a group of people having a conversation on one of your photos), or no activity (such as a friend used an annoying application like "compare people" and you were notified for some reason)
I got extreme notification elation when I logged onto my facebook and saw that 78 people had commented on my newly posted picture... I had no idea that many people looked at my albums!!

I was happy to the point of notification elation when 53 notifications popped up on my facebook homepage--but I was majorly disappointed when I saw that all of them were because some bitch tagged me in a shitload of random photos.
