Answer: Acronyms

One of the more prominent changes in communication to emerge in the digital age is the abundant use of acronyms in interpersonal communication. Millions of computer users and frantic text message senders shorten long phrases into compact acronyms such as BRB for “be right back”, BTW for “by the way”, and JK for “just kidding”, to name a few of the many popular ones.

This compacting of language for the sake of speed and efficiency even has a specific name: digispeak–a type of shorthand communication adopted by digital communicators.
