As desktop internet messaging has turned into common shortened and new jargon, text messaging language is becoming even more abbreviated.  Even with the best messages, one is left to decipher the meaning of a message.    Shorthand is done to help accommodate quick typing and use of mobile devices, also with multiple conversations all happening at once.   However, amidst the confusion we pack meaningful information, as well as proper etiquette and politeness into our messages and do so to be both quick and correct when communicating.
