  • "blog or blogosphere litter," hence blitter

    I am sure it has already been invented, but I used the term today in my blog at http://gotbuzz.vox.com to talk about "blog debris," or blogs created and then forgotten about, abandoned, left unused, etc. So they populate the blogosphere to no good purpose, taking up space better blogs could occupy instead, IMHO.

    Twitter is so "blitter," IMHO.
