What does WSTM on Snapchat mean?

Way back when texting was brand new, people had to basically pay per message sent. Each message had a maximum of about of characters in each text—sort of like the maximum on Twitter.

There are a whole lot of acronyms that were functional back when texting was more expensive and limited. But they’ve stuck as a form of communication anyway. Things like ILYSM, which means “I love you so much,” and BRB, which means “be right back,” and hundreds more, have entered into the typical communication we’re having with each other.

While there are a whole lot of popular ones we’re used to seeing like the ones above and other super common ones (like LOL, IDK, and JK), there are other acronyms that we see pop up on social media apps that might not be as common or as easy to decode as the others. 

Like WSTM, which is commonly said and seen on Snapchat, the platform where users can share stories with the public or privately to one person or a select group, it was the original “story” type app. These features were super popular and then started to pop up on other platforms, like Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube.

Snapchat is one of the social media platforms where users will chat with people they know or as a first communication to get to know people at the start of a potential dating relationship. Talking on Snapchat allows both people to protect their real phone number and other more personal social media profiles as they get to know each other.

There’s no fee to chat on Snapchat like there would be with traditional dating apps, so it’s a common space for people to comfortably and safely get to know each other.
