An updated Internet slang guide for the FBI
The FBI has published a list of Twitter shorthand that includes BTDTGTTSAWIO (“been there, done that, got the T-shirt and wore it out”), IITYWTMWYBMAD (“if I tell you what this means will you buy me a drink?”), and PMYHMFSWGAD (“pardon me, you have mistaken me for someone who gives a damn”).
TL;DR: Someone’s been seriously messing with the FBI.
In that spirit, we note that they missed these important, commonly used, definitely real Twitter expressions.
