Today's definition was suggested by abrakadeborah. Thank you for the good advice. I have decided to take it. ~ James

I have added a new "Twitter" function to Verbotomy. Now you can post your verboticisms directly to Twitter. Of course the trick with the Twitter, is that your post can only be 140 characters long, so some editing may be required ;-). The Twitter function pre-edits your verboticism to include the word, part of the sentence, your player name, and a link. You can edit this as you see fit. And of course if you have your own twitter account, you can also post there. See the Verbotomy Twitter Stream on the Verbotomy home page. ~ James
