So the word ‘Tilt’ can be used as a noun and a verb. Noun we can use literally to actually tilt something, as in, lean to its side. Also, as another example, you may have had one too many and so may be ‘leaning’ / ’tilting’ as standing.

What Do You Think? Does This Not Mean A Little More Sense Or Have We Completely Fluffed It? 🙂 .
Without people to interact with content online such as this article, someones Insta Post, YouTube Videos, Facebook Posts etc etc, then we would have a really boring Internet.
