Twitter Tips and Jargon for the uninitiated

When you only have 140 characters to work with, you need to be creative and embrace character saving short-forms.   While some English twitter short-forms have found their way into tweets by Francophones, there are also excellent French language ones which are worth notice and use; some of the French abbrevations are shorter and — truth be told —  simply more clever.

English French
TTYL (Talk to you later) A+ (à plus tard)
Where are you? t où? (t’es où?)
LOL (Laughing out loud) mdr (mort de rire)
FYI (For your information) pvi (pour votre information)
Why “pk” or “pq” (pourquoi)
Because pcq (parce que)
I love you je tm  (je t’aime)
