I don't think it's an offensive term. Having a "tweak" is a very common way people here describe the usage of marijuana (or other things). Those who do dr.ugs here even use that word in their phrase to describe their actions..
If someone called me a tweaker I'd probably be angry, but this is only so because I don't do dr.ugs and don't want to be known as a dr.ug user. If you do dr.ugs, though, then I see no real reason to get upset by it. If you're having a tweak, you're a tweaker. xD It's not meant to be an insult, in my opinion, unless someone uses it in an insulting way.
Also: Tweaker - Most commonly known as a speed/meth addict.
Someone who uses speed.. although i apply the term to anyone who looks like their "going to fast" or anyone who speaks really fast or is really fidgetty or nervous looking..
Oh! Well over here in the states, crime is at an all time high. Mostly due to the economy. But tweakers are starting to come out of the wood work.
Not really, I think the main reason why is because I don't know what it means, so if I don't understand it I don't get offended...
Tweaker- slang for a person who uses methamphetamines;
A person who makes small adjustments using a tweaker.
Are you kidding me? For real. What part of the country are you from- not that it matters.
I don't even know what it means. This is the first time I've heard it, so no, I wouldn't.
I live in Canada, and no, I haven't heard it before.
what if it's directed towards you?
How do you get rid of a tweaker?
