I hadn't come across the term before, so I googled it.  It doesn't 
appear to be generic term, but simply part of the name of the "twitter" 
product.  If that is right, you need to provide a generic definition.

Unfortunately, the Wikipedia article didn't enlighten me as to the 
defining characteristics.  In particular, I couldn't find any 
description of how it constrained, or for that matter, abused, HTML.

The Wikipedia example didn't appear to accessible, but I don't know if 
that is because it allows bad practice or forces it (I was looking at 
how it used label).  <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twitter_Bootstrap>

I would suspect pages don't work well CPU load) on older PCs, but it is 
possible they degrade well when the scripting is disabled.
