What does GW stand for?

Good work

Among friends, family members, and (especially) co-workers, GW stands for "good work." Someone who sends you GW is complimenting your performance.

If you want to succinctly thank the person you're chatting with for their compliment, you can respond with:


I saw the finished project, GW!
