Significati di alcune abbreviazioni

Chi va di fretta spesso ha bisogno di alcune abbreviazioni per…andare ancora più di fretta. Così le chat, gli instant messenger e gli sms si riempiono di sigle che, per alcuni, rimangono davvero misteriose.

Non fa eccezione Twitter. Anzi, proprio perchè qui, come per gli sms, c’è un limite (Twitter massimo 140 caratteri), le abbreviazioni sono necessarie e abusate.

Di seguito un elenco. Che è tutto in inglese perchè è così che vengono utilizzate. Vuoi anche la traduzione in italiano? No, è giusto internazionalizzarsi! 🙂
