What Does TTYL Mean?

The full form of ‘TTYL’ talk to you later. Often used while texting people. It is also used on social networking sites. When you wish to tell someone that you will have a word with them later regarding some topic then you can use TTYL. It can also be used to let someone know that you will need to leave the conversation due to some other essential engagement, but you will surely have a word with them later. For a casual conversation, it can mean anything ranging from simply the fact that you will get in touch with a person later to you will talk to your friend again when you have time.

When you are using them you can write them all in uppercase or all of them in lowercase. It can be used as ‘TTYL’ or even ‘ttyl’. Both of these versions are equally accepted and understood.

It is important to remember that these abbreviations are used to have a good speed when we do thumb typing. So remember not to use dots in between the letters. For example: do not write T.T.Y.L, just leave it to TTYL or ttyl. This will simply take up a lot more time and defeat the actual purpose of using these abbreviations.
