Bruce Lawson explains the meaning of the word twap and when best to employ it.

It's such a great word, because it has all the monosyllabic satisfaction of yelling "Twat!" and all the conversation-terminating venom of barking "Crap!" with none of the career-damaging rudeness. In fact, the person hearing the word should leave you feeling reassured and educated, as "Twap" is, of course, an acronym for the phrase "The Web Ain't Print".
