A “subtweet” refers to a Twitter post that mentions another user without including their @username. The term is a blend of “subtle” and “tweet” and is used when someone is indirectly talking about or referencing another person without directly mentioning them. This might be done to either avoid confrontation, to discreetly express disapproval, or even to make an inside joke. It’s worth noting that subtweets can sometimes lead to misunderstandings, as their cryptic nature leaves them open to interpretation.
