Interweb

(INTERnet WEB) Slang for the Internet. The terms Internet and Web are used synonymously all the time, and non-computer people may think the two words mean the exact same thing. Interweb in its singular or plural form has been used mistakenly by neophytes and as a farce by others. See Web vs. Internet.
