DeTweetify

There's no such word but I'm making a prediction that in 2010, someone somewhere will coin and use this word. huh! I love web 2.0. I can write whatever I want and get away with it too!!!

Here's my take on what DeTweetify will come to mean : DeTweetify will be defined on the lines of DeSeasonalize. Since Twitter activity sometimes produces spikes in sales/reputation/etc., you'd want to deseasonlize (or detweetify) your data to reveal the underlying trend!

Btw, it just so happens that a homonym 'DeTweet' does exist - see below (also see Urban Dictionary for similar fancy words)
Detweet

On Twitter, the passing along the tweet of another with some degree of disapproval. It can range from strong (that’s a lie) to mild (there are exceptions or conditions). It shouldn’t be taken as impolite or unfriendly - it’s done in the spirit of twitterville - as a new way to participate in the conversation. Done by adding 'DeTweet' or 'DT' before repeated post.
I thought his tweet was untrue, so I'm DeTweeting it to let others know they shouldn't believe it.
