FBI Releases Internet Slang List

The FBI has seen how, over the years, technology and social media have played a role in criminal investigations. As a result, they have apparently done some investigating and compiled a glossary of terms that they deem to be “Internet Slang.”

Taking a look at some of the terms, from the list, its almost kind of comical. Some of these super long acronyms that the FBI have picked out are things that I’ve never seen on social media. Also, a majority of the acronyms shown in an article from The Washington Post are not commonly used on popular social media sights anyways.

Here are some of the better ones:

BFFLTDDUP (“best friends for life until death do us part) — 414 tweets
BOGSAT (“bunch of guys sitting around talking”) — 144 tweets
BTWITIAILWY (“by the way, I think I am in love with you”) — 535 tweets
DILLIGAD (“does it look like I give a damn?”) — 289 tweets
DITYID (“did I tell you I’m depressed?”) — 69 tweets
E2EG (“ear-to-ear grin”) — 125 tweets
HCDAJFU (“he could do a job for us”) — 25 tweets
IAWTCSM (“I agree with this comment so much”) — 20 tweets
LLTA (“lots and lots of thunderous applause”) — 855 tweets
NIFOC (“naked in front of computer”) — 1,065 tweets, most of them referring to acronym guides like this one.
PMYMHMMFSWGAD (“pardon me, you must have mistaken me for someone who gives a damn”) — 128 tweets
SOMSW (“someone over my shoulder watching) — 170 tweets
WAPCE (“women are pure concentrated evil”) — 233 tweets, few relating to women.”
