So, in order to to fall behind times I've been trying to get to "know" twitter.
Twitter as a name, although unusual, caught on, and you can say it's a brand now. But peoples "obsession" to acronimize (spl?) everything, or to just shorten it is amazing to me So it starts with
Twitter , and it goes to
Twitt
Tweet
Twit

what would be three letter one (haven't see it, I don't think)

twt ?
ttr
what about two letter one
tw ?
tt ?

what do think, where we'll end up?

twtr...imo tbf ;o)

Although I'm not part of the 'in-crowd' of twitter, I don't use it, I think most online savvy people could decipher a conversation where "twitter" was entirely replace by twtr

It just seems to be habit for people who use the same terminology every day. I wonder whether Google turned into "G" because it is so oftenly mentioned in forums like these or because "Y" was insprirational.

So when it gets big enough, it can be just "T."

Well we often refer to Google as G, so potentially I guess?
