ROTFLMAO & other greats from the world of texting

The 50 Most Commonly Used Text Terms have been posted, with 2moro taking the top spot, which frankly is so not the case with me. [Hhahaha, I come to realize later by the way, it's not a ranked list... it's alphabetical.]

I'm rather partial to T9 ... which can be annoying when trying to quickly jet off a note with BTW or ROFL. Forget about trying to make plans with 2nite or 2moro. Oh, and God forbid I try and sneak a tonite in there. T9 ain't playin' that. It takes me less time to just type out the whole word than it does backing up and correcting its stubborn ass.

So if you get a long text message with words fully spelled out, don't LOL at the nerd who sent it.

[By the way, the list is actually referring to all typing shorthands, not just for text. I mean, they must be, or they wouldn't make much sense. IRL? RT? At first I was like "WTF are some of the things on this list? DILLIGAS??"]
