What type of tic is this?

I know I have a mild verbal tic where I will sometimes quietly repeat all of part of things that I say (this is called palilalia I think?) but I also have another related tic where whenever I am typing something, especially in an instant message program, I will vocally repeat what I type in a whisper.

What do you think? Is there a name for what I do and is it considered a "verbal" tic?

P.S. I also sometimes show other symptoms of Tourette's like uncontrollable finger twitches, but I've never been diagnosed.
