The Economist discusses the multilingualism of Twitter. In order to be helpful, here’s the grammar of tweet en Jèrriais:

tuiter = tweet
tuit’tie = tweeting
fail whale = baleine falléraine
j’ai tuité = I’ve tweeted
j’tuitis = I tweeted
èrtuiter = retweet
èrtuité = retweeted
tuiteux = twitter(er)

Et l’ouaîsé? Ch’est un tui-tui.
And what about the picture of the bird? It’s a wryneck (Jynx torquilla).
