What does ITT stand for?

In this thread

If you’ve ever found yourself in an online forum or on social platforms like Twitter or Reddit, you’ve probably come across the term “ITT,” which stands for “in this thread.” It’s often used when referring to something already discussed within a particular thread.

ITT is a common term you’ll see in places where there are multiple discussions happening at once. It sits alongside a host of other thread-related terms such as EOT and threadjacking.

Users typically use ITT to give a brief summary of what’s being discussed in the thread, often in the thread’s title. It serves as a quick way for others to understand the topic at hand without having to read through every single post.

However, ITT isn’t always used in a friendly context. Sometimes, it’s used out of frustration when someone jumps into a discussion without reading what’s already been covered. In these cases, you’ll need to “read the room” to understand the mood of the person who used it.
