Twitter Abbreviations You Need To Know

Nicholas Carlson, businessinsider.com:

Here is what we've come up with so far. It's hardly exhaustive, so please add abbreviations we should include in the comments.

Technical Twitter abbreviations:

MT = Modified tweet. This means the tweet you're looking at is a paraphrase of a tweet originally written by someone else.
RT = Retweet. The tweet you're looking at was forwarded to you by another user.
DM = Direct message. A direct-message is a message only you and the person who sent it can read. IMPORTANT: To DM someone all you need to type is D username message.
PRT = Partial retweet. The tweet you're looking at is the truncated version of someone else's tweet.
HT = Hat tip. This is a way of attributing a link to another Twitter user.
CC = Carbon-copy. Works the same way as email.

Conversational abbreviations:

IMHO = In my humble opnion.
AYFKMWTS = Are you f---ing kidding me with this s---?
GTFOOH = Get the f--- out of here
OH = Overheard.
NFW = No f---ing way
IRL = In real life
NSFW = Not safe for work.
FML = F--- my life.
FWIW = For what it's worth.
QOTD = quote of the day
BTW = By the way
BFN = Bye for now
AFAIK = As far as I know'
TY = Thank you
YW = You're welcome

We miss any big ones?
