"A twip (which stands for Twentieth of a Point) is a typographical measurement. It is also used as the default measurement in Visual Basic where 15 twips is equal to 1 pixel. A twip is 1/1440 of an inch when derived from the PostScript point at 72 to the inch, as opposed to the printer's point at 72.27 to the inch."
not 17.639µm but 1.7639µm
Surely 567 * 0.0017639 = 1 cm?
"Twip" was also an imaginary brand used in fake commercials on early TV Land. What do you think about an article about that kind of Twip? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Chabba77 (talk • contribs) 02:34, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
Wikipedia articles are about "one meaning" at a time. I removed the following:
- Used as a term on the NPR radio show, Says You!, as it was aired on 16 December, 2005.
- Take What Insurance Pays - a surgeon's agreement to accept a lower payment than he ordinarily would for a procedure and not charge the patient the difference.
- Terminal Weather Information for Pilots
- An imaginary product advertised for sale on TV Land 
Doesn't make sense.
"15 twips are equal to one pixel. One centimetre is equal to 566.928 twips." Are twips dependent on pixels or centimetres? It can't be both, because screen resolutions, and therefore pixels per centimetre, differ. The quote above would imply that every computer screen has a resolution of 37.7952 pixels per centimetre... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 06:34, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
