Din dicționarul Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) :

  twiddle n. 1. Tilde (ASCII 1111110, `~'). Also called `squiggle',
     `sqiggle' (sic -- pronounced /skig'l/), and `twaddle', but twiddle is
     the most common term. 2. A small and insignificant change to a program.
     Usually fixes one bug and generates several new ones (see also shotgun
     debugging). 3. vt. To change something in a small way. Bits, for
     example, are often twiddled. Twiddling a switch or knobs implies much
     less sense of purpose than toggling or tweaking it; see frobnicate. To
     speak of twiddling a bit connotes aimlessness, and at best doesn't
     specify what you're doing to the bit; `toggling a bit' has a more
     specific meaning (see bit twiddling, toggle). 4. Uncommon name for
     the twirling baton prompt.

          often twiddled.  Twiddling a switch or knob implies much less

          best doesn't specify what you're doing to the bit; to
          "{toggle a bit" has a more specific meaning.
