Excellent information for today's texting and Tweeting!!! Voted!

I have used just a few of these abbreviations on your list but most of them I never knew. Thanks for sharing.

I only knew a few from life in chatrooms (the old CBS chat rooms for Big Brother, Survivor, and Amazing Race), I do not text on my phone.
