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
