Commonly Used Text Message Abbreviations

Part of the beauty of text messaging is that it is short! Your message is limited to a mere 120 characters, which means you have to be creative while still getting your message across to your customers. Using well known abbreviations can help you get your message across while staying within the text message character limits. Below are some of the common text message abbreviations. When using abbreviations, keep your customer in mind: are they going to understand the abbreviation? If not, then your message will not be understood.
