What does WTM mean?

It is mainly used in messaging and on social media – such as Snapchat and Instagram – by teenagers and most adults.

When did it start?

No exact origin for “wtm” is known.

But as part of popular Internet slang, this abbreviation most likely has its roots in the rise of social networking and messaging.

Used in chat rooms, online games and other network services, its main function is to facilitate communication, making it faster to respond or post.

#wtm is also popular on social networking sites.

Although more common now, the base of internet slang was created around 1979 when new computer products and services were first introduced.

However, acronyms served their purpose before the internet as people looking for love in personal advertising would use terms like WLTM – want to meet – and GSOH – sense of humour.

Some have been popularized in music videos – think Justin Bieber’s ‘What Do You Mean’ (WYM) and Katy Perry’s Last Friday Night (TGIF).

While others have even earned a place in the Oxford English Dictionary – such as ‘vv’ and ‘ie.’
