What does TTMN stand for?

Talk to me now

TTMN is a popular acronym in the world of texting and online messaging. It stands for “talk to me now” and is generally used when there is an urgent need to communicate. It’s not a term to be used lightly, as it suggests the matter at hand is too important to wait.

Imagine a group of teenage girls, one of them has some juicy gossip to share. She can’t just text it, she needs to talk about it, either over the phone or face-to-face. That’s when she might use TTMN, to express her urgency and the need to spill the beans immediately.

The term is also used as a response to TTYL (talk to you later), especially if the other person is busy. But watch out, as TTMN can come across as demanding or even rude. So, it’s best used when the situation truly calls for immediate communication.

Example for using ‘TTMN’ in a conversation

Hey, did you hear what happened at the party last night? TTMN! 😮

No, it’s urgent! I can’t wait! TTMN! 🙏

Okay, okay! What’s up? 😬
