What does LD stand for in messages?

Later dude

When parting from a digital conversation, you can leave by sending "LD," which stands for "later dude." Most people use it when DMing on a social site (like Twitter or Instagram), messaging in a chatroom, or texting.

You might use LD to end a conversation in many situations, including attending class, joining a meeting, or starting a shift at your job. Or, you might be sitting down for dinner or tired and going to bed. For example, you might need to end a conversation to start cooking dinner, "About to put some steaks on the grill. LD."
