How To Write A Twitter Message:Abbreviations

What You Say If You Want To Abbreviate When You Tweet

I asked contributor and social media expert Kelly Vandever to tell us which Twitter abbreviations that she commonly uses. Here is Kelly’s response.

“This is not very exciting, but here are some of my most common abbreviations.

I try not to abbreviate.  Mostly I reword or remove words to make messages shorter.

Here are common abbreviations I’ve copied from others
Social Medi = SoMe
to = 2
be = B
you = U
retweet = RT
you are = UR
you’re welcome = YW
see = C

Here are some regular words I use but try to write shorter – they’re usually understood within the context of the tweet
powerful = pwrful
project = proj
resolution = res
through = thru
your = yr

I hope this helps.”  –Kelly Vandever

Don’t get embarrassed using a spurious Lincoln quote. Here’s a quotation book you can trust

The Words Lincoln Lived By is a stirring, inspirational treasury of quotations from our greatest and most admired president. Composed of Lincoln’s profound observations—one for every week of the year, each followed by a short commentary that provides historical context—the book offers rich material for interpretation, reflection, and spiritual guidance. In these pages, Lincoln, famed as an orator, shares his wisdom on courage and determination, compassion and compromise, tolerance and tact—the essential traits that define character. The timeless impact of his words is as powerful as the achievements that have helped to make him an American hero.

Every Lincoln quotation in this book is authentic.
