Not sure how brand new it is, but I encountered it (the term, not the
activity) for the first time today, in a piece on the first page of the
Times Business section. Not a brilliant coinage, but I suppose an
inevitable one, especially since it seems to conjure both "tweeting" and
"talking" as well.  Maybe for the "unlikely to succeed" category?
