Chat conversations often take place at a very quick pace. To keep things flowing back and forth, it often helps to use abbreviations for frequently typed expressions. Below is a list of abbreviations you may see in chat messages:

Abbreviation What It Means
lol Laugh out loud
rotfl Roll on the floor laughing
btw By the way
imho In my humble opinion
brb Be right back
ttyl Talk to you later

Another common practice is to use numbers in place of letters. For example, the phrase “c u 2nite” means “I will see you tonight.”
