Mashable: A guide to Twitter lingo
Often times it is difficult with the latest trends of internet lingo. Mashable posted a round-up of some acronyms and terms associated with Twitter.
The list goes beyond the normal hash and @ symbol. I pulled some of the key acronyms from the article for your information.
FF: stands for “Follow Friday,” a way to give an endorsement or shout out to other Twitter users by suggesting that people follow them.
ICYMI: “In case you missed it.” Often employed when a Twitter user retweets his or her own content from earlier.
NSFW: This term denotes potentially inappropriate or graphic content.
OH: This one can have two meanings.
2. Although in the wider world, OH is more likely to mean “other half,” on Twitter, it’s a way of reporting a humorous or eyebrow-raising comment.
SMH: Shake/shaking my head. An expression of disbelief or disappointment. Can also be used to express puzzlement — “scratching my head” — although this is a less popular usage.
