The New York Times has picked up on a regrettable coinage for Mid-Market that must be stopped: the Twitterloin. The Chronicle traces the rise of the not-super-popular portmanteau, noting its early use in a 2009 tweet from the Gray Area foundation for the arts, which should have known better. Let's all agree to take this no further, in the interest of preventing monstrosities like SoTwiLo and NoTwiLo from taking hold. [SFGate]
