The fine art of the subtweet is defined (well, I’m defining it here now) as tweeting about somebody without an @ mention, so that they won’t know you’re tweeting about them. It has degrees and variations; sometimes you’re carefully not directly responding to a specific tweet, sometimes you’re just gossiping about a person behind their back but in public. Carried to the next level, you can do it by taking your comments to an entirely different social media platform.

I guess that’s what I’m doing here, with an added layer of obfuscation-by-time-delay. This post has been deliberately left to languish in my drafts for quite some little time. By now, even if you think it might be about a tweet you once made, it could more likely have been about somebody else’s tweets, and that’s how I want things; I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings by stomping on their honest joy and enthusiasm. I’m going for harmless snark, here.

Because recently I’ve seen several different tweets from different people in a common theme, and that theme has been delight in having “found” their partner’s prostate. And every time I see that on Twitter, I have to sit on my fingers, lest I type some variation on “Oh, dear, how long was it missing?”

Yes, I am a bad person.
