E-Mail Messaging - What Do Those Abbreviations Mean?


With the speed of e-mail and instant messaging, users are also shortening their words in their messages. Most of us are familiar with common abbreviations such as LOL (laughing out loud), GR8 (great), BTW (by the way) and C U L8TER (see you later), but others may have you stumped.



Here are a few to make you appear more Net savvy.

BAC = by any chance

GMTA = great minds think alike

HLOLARAWCHAWMP = hysterically laughing out loud and rolling around while clapping hands and wetting my pants

IRL = in real life

LTNS = long time no see

OTOH = on the other hand

TPTB = the powers that be

TTFN = ta ta for now

WTG = way to go
