I heard a Brit on the tely use Twitter as a verb instead of the usual tweet that you hear on American television and it dawned on me that he was not wrong to do so, odd as it might have sounded. My question is this: wouldn't that phrasing actually be more correct than saying tweet since tweeting would have to be taken metaphorically (or whatever that figure of style is) ?
