What does Tx mean?


When chatting online or texting, people often use the term ‘tx’ to express gratitude or appreciation. This is a shorthand way of saying “thanks”, but it’s not as commonly used as ‘thx’ or ‘TY’.

Imagine getting a message from a buddy saying, “Tx for covering my shift today. You’re a lifesaver!” Or perhaps your crush sends a text after a fun outing together, “Had a blast today, tx!”

Even though ‘tx’ is a quick and easy way to say thanks, it’s not as well-known. This means some people might not know what you’re trying to say, which could lead to misunderstandings. It’s usually safer to stick with the more popular ‘thx’ or ‘TY’.

Of course! It’s actually not that complicated. Here’s how you solve it…

Tx! That makes so much more sense now. You’re a lifesaver!

No problem at all! I’m glad I could help. Do you have any other questions?

Not right now, but I’ll definitely ask if I need more help. Tx again!
