What does LPT stand for?

Life Pro Tip

When you see ‘LPT’ on Reddit or other social sites, it’s short for “Life Pro Tip.” This handy acronym usually comes just before someone shares a useful tip or nugget of advice.

Its use is most common on the subreddit r/LifeProTips, but because that space is so popular, ‘LPT’ is now used on many other platforms. You can spot it on Twitter, Instagram, and even TikTok, always associated with a piece of advice that could potentially be life-changing.

However, just because a tip is labeled ‘LPT’ doesn’t always mean it’s going to be super helpful. Because it’s used so much these days, there’s a wide range of advice quality out there. So, while some ‘LPT’ posts might offer great insights, others might not be as useful.
