Warning: these interpretations may not be standards.
Text acronyms have been overtaken by emoticons, so things like VBG: very big grin might be better represented by or ) also; X.O is poke in eye or black eye for when you supposedly injure someone with your words; O.O is when you are awake and interested “is that rumor really true;” O.o is when you are confused.
Be careful when using punctuation near emoticons as it can alter their meanings.
Common Text Acronyms: BRB: be right back, AFK: away from keyboard, BTW: by the way, IMO: in my opinion, IMHO: in my humble opinion, L8R–avoid using this: [see you] later–which internationally is the same as bye rather then the arrangement of a meeting later on and probably should be avoided because it is confusing, LOL: laughing out loud [less common interpretation is lots of love], ROFL: rolling on floor laughing, OMG: oh my god–which is just and inflated version of I can’t believe this, RT: re-tweet–but also has the alternative meaning of “real time,” TKS or THKS: thanks, TMI: too much information, TLC: tender loving care, WTF: what the fuck–often said when something unexpected happens, XOXO: shorter form of xoxoxo and means hugs and kisses (often used as a ending to message).
