Before Macromedia Flash existed, Macromedia Director already had tweeners. So the term is older than Flash at least. I actually think it's even older than that and comes from the animation industry.
Wikipedia supports me, at least in that Inbetweening is older than computer animation. The short term tweening might be younger.
