Twitter Symbols And Abbreviations Make New Lingo

Twitter symbols and abbreviations

As Twitter becomes an increasing number of standard and users attempt to study the ins and outs of using it, they would possibly come across completely different symbols, some of which might be unknown to them.

we all know the # stands for a hashtag and is used when something is trending or has the potential to trend. but do you know what the most popular symbols on Twitter imply?

Mashable got here up with an interesting guide to what they name “Twitter Lingo”.

@ used to point anyone’s deal with or Twitter name. an identical idea as that used for e-mail addresses.

# the pound signal, as indicated, is used to emphasize an event, emotion, or person. Used widely on Twitter and now fb has additionally adopted it.

^ the caret or hat, is used when there are several people using the identical account, as in a business. on the finish of the Tweet the name of the person tweeting would be brought after the emblem. (^PD).

$ The buck sign is used on Twitter prior to a company’s shortened stock market name/code as a kind of monetary hashtag.

Now to one of the best abbreviations on Twitter, which can also be much like those used in texting.

AFAIK “as far as i know.”

CC “carbon reproduction.” Used with an @ mention, it is used to deliver a Tweet to somebody’s consideration.

CX “Correction.”

DM Direct message or private message. When any person tweets DM me, it means send me a personal message.

FF “follow Friday,” a approach to provide an endorsement or shout out to different Twitter users via suggesting that folks practice them. A recognition to your followers.

HT some instances H/T, “hat tip” is a option to provide a polite nod to the person who initially shared content material you’re tweeting. just like giving somebody a “by the use of”.HT will probably be followed by using an @ mention giving a namecheck. mmon definition, but is just about the identical sentiment.ICYMI

MM “song Monday” used to be a popular technique to counsel song you had been at present playing or artist recommendations. It isn’t used frequently, but in the event you see it, that’s what it manner.

MT Modified tweet. When changing an authentic tweet within a retweet, usually because of space restrictions. One must be inventive with 140 characters.

NSFW “not secure for work.” may be inappropriate or picture content.

OH “Overheard.” Used to seek advice from a humorous or eyebrow-elevating remark.

PRT “Partial retweet”. a method of letting people know you’ve edited a tweet. might also imply “please retweet.”

RLRT “actual existence retweet. just like OH, RLRT is used while you tweet a quote from any individual “in actual life.”

RT “Retweet”. choosing the choice allowed by Twitter to RT. from time to time finished manually, at the beginning of the unique tweet.

SMH “shaking my head”. Is used to specific puzzlement at any individual’s comment.

TFTF “Thanks for the observe.”

TIL “nowadays I learned…”

TLDR “Too long; didn’t learn.” Used jokingly or as an insult. watch out.

TMB “Tweet me back.”

TQRT “Thanks for the retweet.”

TT “Translated twee”. A warning that an authentic tweet has been translated to a different language.

W/ “With.”

a few of these could be evident, however it’s worthwhile to sit there, staring at the screen for a very long time trying to figure out what one of the most abbreviations imply. i do know I’ve finished it and frequently end up asking.

you may also need to shop this at hand record, to test up while you see that bizarre abbreviation

    Ok, so I want more followers, but what sort of things should I tweet to like, make people want to follow me. Something to do with Justin Bieber would be good. Thanks

    No nasty comments please :)

  2. slipknot0129 says:

    When I tweet a message to my friend’s twitter page, my tweet always show up on my twitter page. Why is that and will my followers/friends still respond?

  3. Joey 01 says:

    how do i get a celebrity to tweet me back that has less than 10,000 followers so it will be possible.

  4. krow147 says:

  5. mike s says:

    Okay so on my iPhone 4S, I have the twitter app. My phone vibrates all the time, when I get a tweet and it’s so annoying. It vibrates at least once every five minutes and I don’t know how to stop it. Is there a way to stop my twitter notifications vibrating, but keep the vibration for when I get a text or a call?

  6. Le Pwner says:

    How can I track the location of a tweet that was tweeted from an iPhone or iPod Touch? Is it possible?

  7. Johnky J says:

    One of my friends tweeted on their cell phone. it was a long tweet (over 140 characters), and usually twitter stops you and it doesn’t let you finish the tweet. but that didn’t happened because she was on her cell. it still got tweeted, but since it was over 140 tweets, it ended with ‘…’
    How can i finish reading it? is there a website or something that will let me see the whole tweet?

  8. addmeonxbox360myuserisfallior says:

    I want to tweet Edge a question, but I don’t want to be annoying. I already tweeted him on Sunday, and on Monday. I just didn’t want to be annoying.
    He responded to my tweet on Sunday, but not on Monday.

  9. Coffee t says:

    I want to see an old tweet but it stops uploading more tweets once I get to a certain amount. Anyway I can get past this and see the really old tweets?

  10. Scott W says:

    Like this,

    A nice big gap inbetween my tweet, I have tried making it on word and copying and pasting, but that doesn’t work! when I send the tweet it just goes back to normal and mushes it all together again. Let me know, thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

  11. PIE BOY says:

    Tweet @twilight is doing a contest and the winner gets a call from a cast member of twilight and it says to @twilight this i’ve seen neww moon __ time but whats the number you send it to if your using a mobile phone please help?

  12. Cliffy N says:

    I work for a nonprofit and I’m trying to set up something where a visitor can automatically tweet a specific phrase from our blog. For example

    “One in two men will get cancer in their lifetime” Tweet this fact now.

    Anyone know of any widgets or other ways to do this?

  13. cardskid22 says:

    I want to get my tweet posted on television, but I have no idea how to do so. Please walk me through the process, 10 points will be gladly rewarded.

  14. Rishabh Bajpai says:

    I’ve never sent a direct message. If my tweet count is 30, and I send someone a direct message, will my tweet count then be 31?

  15. brincks26 says:

    I child I visit in hospital has leukaemia, shes very young and idolizes a certain singer (whom is apparently not extremely well known). she has a drawing of this singer she drew and it would lighten up her day if she knew this singer saw her tweet, im trying to help her out with how to word it, but I need some help.

  16. BRUTE says:

    This is a hypothetical legal question:

    Assume a public figure tweets several tweets that are deemed controversial, they each receive 100+ retweets, so they are publicly visible and the extent of that visibility isn’t an issue, that is easily proven. Assume someone takes screenshots of each tweet. The public figure later deletes that twitter account removing it and all tweets from public view.

    Can the screenshots of the tweets be published in a newspaper or on a website without legal repercussion on the basis that they were publicly visible or would this be illegal as the tweets are now deleted?

  17. Roar me R says:

    I want to tweet my favorite band and ask if the lead singer/guitar player will do a quick cover of a song by another artist. How do I phrase it without it sounding weird? Is “Hey Mike, can you please do an acoustic cover of this song by this artist?” Too blunt?

  18. Michael says:

    I wanted to delete my tweet, but it still is there everytime I look at it! I click the little garbage and it leaves, but then its back next time i look!

  19. Mark M says:

    How do I include the little symbol pictures in my tweet?

  20. Willie says:

    My favourite celebrity has over 400,000 twitter followers and I am determined to get a tweet from him. Any ideas of what to do or say to get him to tweet back?

  21. JimT says:

    I know how to send a tweet with the @ before the person’s screen name. And I know that your tweet gets posted to your Twitter page. But can’t seem to get my tweets to get posted to people’s Twitter page. I’ve tried to come back after some time to that person’s page & my tweet still doesn’t show.

  22. Rishi says:

    If I reply to someone else’s Tweet with @somebody… it’s part of my Twitter stream, even if mainly intended for the other Twitterer. My blog has a Twitter badge which displays my latest few Tweets. This includes the @responses. How can I lose these, they’re totally out of context? I imagine some tweak to the java script, but I don’t know enough about that. Thanks.

  23. PolishPokeyPimp says:

    I have a private account on twitter and I noticed it said open at the end of my tweet what does that mean is it public?

  24. Courtney says:

    So yeah how do you get them to notice your tweet because i’ve tried like 10000000000 times and it never seem that they see them

  25. kewlflame14 says:

    I was just wondering how to send a tweet to your phone without having internet on your phone? Could you send it through a text message? If so then how?? Thank you!

  26. Rassling Fundamentals says:

    I’ve tweeted celebrities and while some non famous NFL players have replied I’m trying to up the anty. Right now I’m trying to get some Olympians to follow me, especially Mckayla Maroney. Of course them replying to a tweet would be step 1 but I would like the opportunity to DM them. So if anyone has any insight on how to make this happen please help!

  27. jdfan says:

    People are always saying they hit their “tweet limit.” It’s never happened to me. I was just wondering if there is a certain amount of tweets you get an hour or day or something.

  28. balinderk2000 says:

    I just want to know if that means they’ll see the Tweet, or does it just put a link to their Twitter account?

  29. JDOGG1122 says:

    I want to tweet at some celebrities by using the @’username’ thing. But my friend tweeted me using that method, and I either didnt get it, or dont know how to view it. Is that the correct way to tweet directly at someone, and if it is, then how do you view the tweets people send to you?

  30. Mathew says:

    I have tweeted to some of my favorite celebrities, hoping that I tweeted to their actual account and not some imposter, and they won’t tweet me back. I have seen that they have tweeted back to many other followers, but none of them will tweet me back. What do I do?

  31. jdfan says:

    Can I tweet in English or do I need to tweet in Arab?

  32. Cole says:

    How do you tweet them at the concert and it shows what seat and row you’re in at the arena?! I don’t get it at all, and I really want them to sing happy birthday to my friend.

  33. Tyler H says:

    I have been trying to get Bret Michaels & Kim Kardashian to tweet me back on twitter. But they will not respond. What can I do to have them respond?! Thank You!

  34. nathan says:

    Im always seeing One Direction read off tweets at there concerts but how do you tweet them? and then they read it and how do they pick whos to read?

  35. Sriram R says:

    Please help. Sometimes my budgie starts to tweet at random times and also sometimes flaps his wings.
    Also what do I need to know about breeding budgies?
    Sorry I forgot to add that he is always out of his cage when he does it.
    And he is alone.

  36. steve says:

    I am following this person. Do I put quotation marks “@username” or do I just send the tweet without quotation marks

    @username then the update or the tweet

  37. Mark M says:

    I have been trying to tweet someone on twitter, but they never reply. I think I might be doing it wrong somehow. Can someone please tell me how to tweet? Thanks.

  38. Rkmc says:

    I want to get alerts when only certain people tweet. Is there anyway I can set this up (on my computer) ?

  39. vanvark83 says:

    I saw it today with this rap groups website, and I am trying to find out how they did it for my own promotional purposes. I hope someone can shed light on what I am asking.

    IF you aren’t clear, when you click on this particular website it automatically makes you follow the guys in the group and automatically tweet the url of the website.

  40. Jairo says:

    I want to send a Tweet to my friend and I want ALL people who follow my friend to get an alert of that same tweet. The people that follow my friend do not currently follow me though. Is this possible. I want to send a tweet to my friend and I also want that same tweet to be automatically broadcasted to ALL of my the receipients followers. Please help!

  41. Coffee t says:

    I had 80 people retweet my last tweet, but I can only see the latest 15. I said I’d list everyone who retweeted that tweet… Is there a way that I can see all 80 of those people?

  42. superdork says:

    An example you are watching a cable news show and they are talking about an event and ask viewers to tweet about it. Even The Weather Channel asks for tweets about the weather or a talk show asks for tweets about a subject…it can be random. Most of the time they never tell you hoe or where.

  43. Jamal says:

    its like what is the meaning of retweet? y do have to retweet other ppl’s tweet?

  44. Lasagna delivery guy says:

    A friend uses Tweet Adder, the program for Twitter for automation and to add followers, and he said that he got a copy for free. Is that possible?

  47. everythingisgonnabefine says:

    what is the difference when i tweet with a hashtag ex. #CSI o normal CSI. If i want to tweet a TV show with what should I tweet. If I tweet with a hashtag does it also tweet without a hashtag. How many tweets must be in order for it to become a trending topic?

Provide an example of a Do Not Use abbreviation and describe what the consequences of mistaking the abbreviation would be. How might a pharmacy technician take steps to prevent abbreviation error?

    to get a background check.

    Some of the cases say closed. They all have a case # too.

  60. Alun J says:

    I had my twitter account for 1 day and it’s already suspended! I have no idea what I exactly did wrong, but I followed the directions on other websites of what to do, but I’m now just wondering how long it usually takes until Twitter unsuspends your account if they actually do? I’m not exactly a patient person.. (: Thanks!

  61. Coffee t says:

    How can I stream Twitter Feeds to my Facebook page in real-time, without any delay? I used to use “Smart Tweets For Pages” in Facebook, but now, I have to administer the Twitter pages that I want to feed to my Facebook page. RSS Graffiti is delayed a little bit. What application can I use that does this instantly?

    What is the benefits-costs balance of creating and keeping a Twitter profile? I already have a Facebook profile and feel it is taking up a huge part of my time and more commitment and investment than I would have liked to give it. But at the same time I am curiousr about all the interest in Twitter and tweets and wonder whether I am missing something good!

    I heard that it is very difficult to earn money on twitter. How are many people making so much money on Twitter? I want to know how people are using Twitter to become rich. I am totally confused.

    Are there any books or like which can teach how exactly to use twitter to earn much money? Please tell me what are the ways in detail, I am willing to pay if I find useful information on how to monetize on twitter.

  68. nmlpc says:

    I have heard about the original twitter app “Twitter”, echofon, and TweetDeck. I want to know what is the best twitter app out of these 3? Or better yet, do you know another app that is better than the ones I have already listed? I want to know the best one that has the overall best positive reviews.

  69. Orbit says:

    I don’t get the whole Twitter fad. Who cares about the minuscule details of a random person’s life? Why do people care so much on Twitter, yet no one cares about anyone in their own neighborhoods and communities anymore. Everyone just walks around with their noses in their iphones and don’t even bother to look up and say “hi” to people they know.

  70. JimT says:

    I love to roleplay on twitter if anyone here knows what that is. I know about the Boston Blood one but the girls in that are not part of the gangs. Please help! Thanks!

    I would appreciate any and all suggestions.

  76. baldy eire says:

    I’ve been trying to figure this Twitter thing out and apparently it’s good for bloggers and famous people and businesspeople to share news about what’s going on. My question is, what purpose does it serve for regular people that don’t have a new album out or anything? Do you just tell people stuff like “Out with my friends” or whatever?

    Also, if you get Twitter, can you just follow celebrities to see what they’re up to and not tweet about anything?

  77. kass9191 says:

    I want to make a twitter layout for an english project–different characters of a book tweeting each other. Is there a place I can get one easily or should I just make a bunch of different accounts?

  79. Scott W says:

    Looking for specific examples on how neighbors could use a service like Twitter to improve safety/security? For example, send a Tweet if a suspicious person is spotted along with location, etc. Other examples?
    Well, since learning that only one person can tweet into a Twitter feed, I guess Twitter is out of the question for this application. If anyone knows of a service that would allow *everyone* on the distribution to contribute, please let us know about it! Thanks!!

  80. Xedo says:

  85. Cpt Excelsior says:

    Is twitter a way of hiding conversations? Facebook seems more open. Is twitter a secretive site?

  86. Rkmc says:

    I keep getting twitter updates on my phone. I removed the people following me that i keep getting them from, removed my number from the mobile page in my settings. I emailed twitter about it. And i still keep getting them. Is there any solution besides deleting my account and having to start over.

  87. Balla says:

    These two seem to be the same thing, minus the fact that twitter can text you people’s updates. Why get a twitter when you can just use facebook?

    Can someone help me out with all these abbreviations? My husband and I are going to a fertility specialist in 2 weeks, we’ve been trying now for almost 3 years. Sometimes I google questions I have but often I can’t figure out what people are saying due to all of the abbreviations. Thank you!

  137. Duke says:

    Hi I just need to know some abbreviations you guys use to make your writing faster like gf (girlfriend) or asap (as soon as possible) and some times I can’t understand what I’m reading because I don’t know them for example LOL what does this mean? Do you know some ? could you give me the abbreviations you use thank you so much

  138. Mak Sultan says:

    Please help me to understand the difference between abbreviation and acronym

    Consider this example
    BASIC = Beginners All purpose Symbolic Instructional Code

    1) Should we call the first part as Abbreviation and the second part as Acronym
    2) If both Abbreviation & Acronym are same and hence refer to ‘BASIC’ in the above example
    then what do you call the second part (Expansion?).

  139. Vultre9 says:

  144. Con Orpe says:

    Does “The e.s.p is a abbreviation of the especially.” have the same meaning as “The e.s.p stands for the especially.”?
    Ummm should I have typed as esp? The Collins Cobuild Dictionary says “esp. is a written abbreviation for especially.”
    Doesn’t it mean the same thing as “esp stands for especially”?

  145. lucasg615 says:

    Should we use so many abbreviation on this site?

    Remember, there are many Non-English speaking people here, or those, whose command of the English language is not that perfect.

    What do you think?

  154. Picean says:

    is it just a coincidence that the abbreviations of the states are made by taking the first and last letter?
    or is this just a random coincidence?
    or are there rules and that is why some states don’t follow it?
    NY New York
    just a random thought!

  155. Malcolm Hudson says:

  163. have faith says:

    why do people shorten words and use abbreviations in their questions and answers that nobody else in here understands? in fact most of the answers are HUH??? i understand that some things like lol and lmao and ttfn are popular and not to bad because their widely recognized as chat abbreviations. but isnt it getting rediculous?

  164. Yoshi says:

    Who use abbreviations?
    Do young people use them mainly?
    Do you feel a sense of inconguity if an aged use them?
    Or everyone uses them?
    Japanese girls [around 15] often use 「わ wa」 instead of 「は ha」.
    For exampre, 「私わ watasiwa」.
    Could English abbreviations be used like the usage of 「わ」?

    and could you tell me some abbreviations? [such as `btw` and`u`.]

    Lastly, some days ago, I use `gotta` and `wanna` in a sentence.
    A man says ,`There are no such words as wanna and gotta`.
    I have seen `wanna` and `gotta` in some sentences.
    Are there really no words as wanna and gatta ?
