I have noticed that abbreviations are used more these days especially with text messaging to cut down the phone charges when using so many characters. Also, on the popular social media site Twitter, you can only use 140 characters for your Tweets so an abbreviation comes in handy. Plus, they are great to use for Twitter #hashtags...you know what those are right;-) You're followers will understand.
For instance, the show "Dancing with the Stars" gets shorted with "DWTS." Even the President of the United States title gets abbreviated by using POTUS. The First Lady doesn't get left out either, her title reads "FLOTUS."
We're living in an Abbreviated World and it saves time when so many of us are on-the-go. LOL!
