What does twinking mean?

Leveling up with assistance

A gaming term that means a low-level character, a twink, is being helped with the assistance of a higher level character, who provides good gear and inventory items; sometimes considered an illegitimate means of playing and leveling up because the character doesn't have to "go through the ropes" like the others.
