Twitter and Text-Messaging - Abbreviations you should know!

Twitter and Text-Messaging: Abbreviations you should know! -  I thought I was becoming a pretty fast 2-thumb texter and was familiar with many of the abbreviations used on Twitter and text-messaging. Text-Messaging Abbreviations

I know IMO (“In my opinion”), ROFL (“Rolling on the floor laughing”) and BFF (“Best friends forever”), LOL (“Laugh out loud”) and OMG (“Oh my God”) among others. Yesterday my Mom sent an e-mail with something WAY too personal and I responded, TMI! Mom e-mailed back to inquire about the meaning of TMI (Too Much Information)!

My husband is working on a project setting up a new hire's PR for Twitter, Facebook, etc., and he sent me a press release to proof. He had, "Visit Kim on Twitter!" I immediately phoned my husband to correct him that it should read "Follow Kim @ Twitter!"

My husband, BTW, has learned to READ my text-messages, but still hasn't figured out how to respond to them.
