Some common abbreviations used in text messages are LOL for "laughing out loud," OMG for "oh my God," JK for "just kidding," IMO for "in my opinion" and TTYL for "talk to you later." IDK means "I don't know," IRL means "in real life" and BRB means "be right back."

Other examples include NVM for "never mind," AFAIK for "as far as I know," TMI for "too much information," RBTL for "read between the lines" and OT for "off topic." Texters may provide warnings such as PAW, which means "parents are watching," and NSFW, which means "not safe for work."
