IT ANSWERS – Text Speak, Abbreviations to know.

So, everyday we seem to find ways to make things easier for our selves. Especially in the age of the text message, chat, tweet, etc. Grammar is really suffering for it but I have to admit, with out the aid of spell checkers, a lot of us may start crying on a regular basis when reading mails.

However, in this age of instant messages, more and more short codes for long words seem to keep emerging and as always we are here to shed some light on the subject.
