Deletion debate[edit]

The following information has failed Wiktionary's deletion process.

It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.

Name of one specific Web site; Wikipedia material. Compare MySpace (go and read that one carefully), which is (supposedly) a generic term: we do not define it as the specific Web site. Equinox 20:34, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Well, this opens up a problem: why do we keep Wiktionary? --Yair rand 20:58, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
Because we are Wiktionary and someone was bound to end up adding it. Wiki terms seem to get some kind of exemption because most of our users like them (see Category:WMF jargon). A more neutral example would be better, e.g. Amazon (the online bookseller — not in our entry). Equinox 23:56, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
Agreed. Delete. Tooironic 04:52, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

This RFV was prompted by WT:Beer parlour/2014/January#Twitter.

RFV of the proper noun section. It needs citations that pass BRAND, or it needs to be re-deleted (it previously failed RFD, but was recreated). Note that the verb is presumably both attested and valid (wrt BRAND). - -sche (discuss) 07:18, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

This discussion is no longer live and is left here as an archive. Please do not modify this conversation, but feel free to discuss its conclusions.

I think that the fifth definition of the verb twitter (" To use the microblogging service Twitter.") should be moved to Twitter and twitter should be an alternative spelling of Twitter. In addition, the Twitter entry probably needs a definition as a proper noun ("An online social networking service founded in 2006."). What do you think? Einstein2 (talk) 16:50, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Proper noun: yes, perhaps. I don't generally like adding brands/trademarks/IP but I suppose Twitter has become a sufficiently significant thing to merit an entry by now, i.e. it's often mentioned in newspapers etc. out of context, without explaining what it is. Verb: really an RFV matter, dependent on how we find the word used in practice. Equinox 22:45, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
