I was wandering around in an internet rabbit hole just now, and came across two words that pleased me.

Now that Twitter is called X, I’ve seen some people use the word xitter, and explain that x is pronounced like sh in some contexts. That doesn’t particularly appeal to me.

But I just saw someone use the word xweex in place of tweet, and xwixxer in place of Twitter, and I do like those.

Especially when I pronounce each x as ks, so I’m pronouncing them ksweeks and kswikser, which makes them fun to say as well as fun to see.
