Twatzi (Twitter + twat + Nazi)

“Twatzi” (Twitter + twat + Nazi) is used to describe an oppressive Twitter (a social networking service), or an oppressive person using Twitter. “Twitter Nazi=twatzi” was posted on Twitter on December 3, 2008.
“Twatzi” (twat + Nazi)—without Twitter—has been used to describe Kellyanne Conway, a counselor in the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump. “Best thing I’ve heard today: @KellyannePolls called a ‘twatzi’” was posted on Twitter on January 29, 2017.
Wikipedia: Twitter
Twitter (/ˈtwɪtər/) is an online news and social networking service where users post and interact with messages, called “tweets.” These messages were originally restricted to 140 characters, but on November 7, 2017, the limit was doubled to 280 characters for all languages except Japanese, Korean and Chinese. Registered users can post tweets, but those who are unregistered can only read them. Users access Twitter through its website interface, Short Message Service (SMS) or mobile device application software (“app”). Twitter, Inc. is based in San Francisco, California, United States, and has more than 25 offices around the world.
Wikipedia: Nazism
National Socialism (German: Nationalsozialismus), more commonly known as Nazism (/ˈnɑːtsi.ɪzəm, ˈnæt-/), is the ideology and set of practices associated with the 20th-century German Nazi Party in Nazi Germany and of other far-right groups. Usually characterized as a form of fascism that incorporates scientific racism and antisemitism, Nazism’s development was influenced by German nationalism (especially Pan-Germanism), the Völkisch movement and the anti-Communist Freikorps paramilitary groups that emerged during the Weimar Republic after Germany’s defeat in the First World War.
