This reminds me that I am still not a fan of tweet.

How about tweeps? A portmanteau of twitter and peeps (aka people).

You mean those little marshmallow chickies, but colored blue?

They've been around for a little while, now...

My wife has very strong opinions regarding Peeps (that is, the marshmallow chicks):

1) They must be chicks--other animals and shapes do not count.
2) They must be the kind you get at Easter--Halloween and Christmas Peeps do not count.
3) They must be yellow--other colors won't fly.

Peeps!  Multicolored Styrofoam with sugar added!
Don't lay up treasures for yourselves on Earth, where they can decay or be stolen.  Lay up treasures for yourselves in Heaven, where there is no decay or theft.  Where your treasure is, you heart will be also.


You can't take it with you.  You can only send it on ahead.

Ah, time to post the annual Peeps lab page...a.k.a. "How to torture a Peep and set off your smoke detector in one easy try..."

Yikes!

My dear peeps: Peeps are Easter candy, not Halloween candy. You are crazy yearning for them now.

Oh, but the Peeps marketing people want you to believe they're a year-round delight, now all those different animals and colors and dioramas exist...

Gaslighting. Great origin story, meaning should be understood. Now thrown out there almost every time there is a difference of opinion.
