Twitter Dictionary
35 Twitter Abbreviations

Do you know how to speak Twitter? It makes sense that with only 140 characters, there would be a need to create some shortcuts, but with all the new abbreviations popping up every day, I think it is becoming more of a dialect. (They are technically called acronyms, not abbreviations)

Just the other day someone tweeted me with IMHO in the tweet. What the heck does that mean? How does someone figure that stuff out? I remember it took me a month to learn that TY stands for thank you. I know duh!

If you are new on Twitter, Im about to save you a whole bunch of time and shorten your learning curve a lot. I made this master list of 35 Twitter abbreviations for us to share. Im sure there may be some Ive forgotten, so please leave them in a comment below.
