The recent Anthony Weiner scandal has produced inevitable debates over whether Internet sex is cheating.

Even I couldn't resist those discussions, as illustrated by my decision to create this Ledger-Enquirer poll.

Anyway, the ordeal has also apparently spawned a new word: chweeting.

It seems like a nice hybrid of "cheating" and "tweeting." Cute, right? But also a little disturbing.

Amid discussions of Internet boundaries and relationships, I wonder if infidelity via social media will soon develop its own vocabulary.

Any additions to the growing dictionary?
