definition of subtweet
a tweet, usually a negative one, that mentions a person without using the @ sign, so that they will not see the message on their Twitter feed. Also a tweet that mentions someone without naming them at all although it is clear who is being referred to.
Subtweets may seem like they empower the subtweeter; actually, the subtweet-ee wins.
