What does DGT mean?

Don’t go there

If you’ve ever been told to DGT, it’s essentially a quick, coded way of saying, “Hey, let’s change the subject” or “Avoid going to that place”. This acronym is mostly used when the topic of conversation is touchy or the location mentioned could be problematic.

It’s a subtle method to steer clear of sensitive discussions or places that could lead to awkward or uncomfortable situations. DGT allows for the shift in discussion or plans without making it overtly obvious to the uninvolved observers.

So, next time when someone drops a DGT in your chat or conversation, they’re just trying to protect you or themselves from a potential conversational landmine or a place that could spell trouble. It’s their way of saying, “Let’s not go there.”

DGT is a handy tool in the world of digital communication, enabling users to navigate sensitive topics and locations with ease and discretion.
