What does BTW Mean?

Of the whole 50,000 acronyms, BTW is the informational acronym, which is an abbreviation for By The way. People use it when they want to give some information that they missed out on the previous SMS.  Also, the usage of this short form can ask for more details around last email or text exchange that you aren’t aware of and are willing to know.

BTW acts like a connector and is more often used in apps where there is a lot of texting. Some of these apps are WhatsApp and hike. They only are useful for conversations but not when we want to use it with hashtags.
