text acronyms

Text and chat acronyms are proliferating at a rapid rate. It can be hard to decipher  and keep up sometimes. Much of it is vulgar and common parlance and that is interesting in itself. The shorthand for text messages and on chat is often the most informal register we have. If you want to stay informed Netlingo has compiled a list of 50 acronyms which are currently the most popular. Netlingo is also the place to go if you see chat text which you are not familiar with. I wonder who is studying its use? Twitter tends to avoid these acronyms unless people are really, really desperate to get the message across in 140 characters. On the other hand, Facebook does use these acronyms quite widely. The more we use mobile devices , the more we are using acronyms and then predictive text is just throwing a bit of chaos in there to help ensure texting is totally informal. Curious.
