A headline in today's paper: 'Earthquake chatters Karnes County'
I could see 'shatters' if it did a lot of harm or 'rattles' if it just shook things around but ... chatters? Come on. Is chatters a transitive verb? Teeth chatter, loquacious types chatter, but neither takes an object. Just being picky again ... you might say I'm niggling this.

Don't think you are being picky at all, I also was wondering what the heck that headline meant. Just doesn't sound right.
