    A "tweaker" is someone who uses meth. The reason they're called "tweakers," I imagine, is because they're jumpy and jittery. If you've ever seen someone high on meth, they can't hold still; they move their arms or legs constantly, shift around, twitch, etc.

    More commonly, it's used to insult someone who isn't really an addict but is acting irrationally or jumpily.

    A tweaker is either someone who uses methamphetamines, or someone who is constantly tweaking, changing, modifying, cleaning things.

    I've always taken "tweaker" to mean someone who is strung out on crack, meth, etc.
