FAQ:

What does the "T" in TWiki stand for?

Answer:

TWiki is short for TakeFive Wiki, the name of the company where its founder Peter Thoeny worked. Peter first named the platform T5Wiki, then shortened it to TWiki (pronounced twee-kee).

It was later discovered that Twiki is also the name of an AI robot that co-starred in the Buck Rogers movie and TV series from 1979.
