MTV has apparently gotten the messages that a lot of people are not happy with Mike Welch referring to the fandom as Twi-hards. In fact they seem only vaguely aware that Mike made up that term less than two months ago and it was not in usage before that. In their infinite wisdom they seem to only have looked as far as the IMDB boards for alternate names, and have included the name of a clique in the IMDB boards as an option.
So before we get stuck with a name you HATE, Go give them an opinion as to what you would prefer to be called.
On a personal note, it’s always seemed to me that fans have called themselves Twilighters since the books came out, and then would maybe indicate that they were a Lexiconer, a T&D, a or a MySpacer etc. if they were trying to find other people from the website they most frequently hang out on.
EDITED: Nice response time! When I put this up there were 27 responses on MTV, there are now 231, and that was less than an hour ago. Over 200,000 people viewed our blog yesterday. YOU may not be able to vote in the general US election, but you do have a vote in this, so go and be heard with whatever your preference is.
