I’ve just a light post today. Something you might find useful, as you flit about the internet to this place or that. You see, I’m on Twitter a lot, and also peruse various blogs. At times, (and this is especially true for Twitter), the lack of room makes people likely to shorten the names of things by using acronyms. This is awesome, but if you don’t necessarily know what a thread is about, a random acronym might throw you off.
In order to help with that situation, I’ve cobbled together a short list of acronyms I’ve been seeing a lot of on Twitter. The ones listed below are RPG (see, another acronym) related only. I’ve left out common texting acronyms (like LOL or STFU), as plenty of lists exist elsewhere on the internet to help you with those.
Before you say anything, I’m sure with some careful searching, you could find some RPG related acronym lists as well. This post is one to help my readers and followers should they need it.
