Internet slang consists of slang and acronyms that users have created as an effort to save keystrokes. Terms have originated from various sources including Bulletin Boards, AIM, Yahoo, IRC, Chat Rooms, Email, Cell Phone Text Messaging, and some even as far back as World War II. While it does save keystrokes, Internet slang can prove very hard to read.

Here’s a short list of the more obscure acronyms. Can you guess?

  • asarbambtaa
  • miid
  • pcbd

tliwwv:this link is worthless without video
