Being Called #Avgeek is a Compliment
One of the most awesome compliments on the aviation twitter scene is being called an #avgeek. There is something fun about it. A lot of us self proclaim that we are #avgeeks. That is awesome, but its even cooler to be called an #avgeek by somebody else.
The term #avgeek seems to come from the old a/v geeks that you'd run into in high school. The audio and visual geeks. Its amazing how Twitter can redefine a word though. If #avgeek were defined in the dictionary, it would probably read something like this....
1.an aviation enthusiast (a term of pride as self-reference, but often useddisparagingly by others).
2.a person who has excessive enthusiasm for and some expertise about aviation: airplanes, general aviation, commercial aviation.
3.a peculiar or otherwise lovable person, especially one who is perceived to be loving of aviation.
4.a hashtag on a tweet with an aviation reference or aviation image with our without filtering.
Being an #Avgeek is probably one of the best things that has happened to me. Its who I am. Its all I think about. Its who I aspire to be! I am proud to be an #Avgeek!
How would you define #Avgeek?

I agree just a shame so many people don't seem to agree if like aircraft then it seems so many people think you are just odd or just plain boring
