What are A to Z E-Text Acronyms

Home » windows » What are A to Z E-Text Acronyms

A few of the more common electronic communications acronyms are individually included and expanded on these pages. This page expands some of the others you may encounter. Please note that shortcuts are frequently made up on the spot so there is no possibility of including every acronym you may encounter here. You may also see these in either lower or upper case. I’ve used upper case here for clarity.
