What does LTS mean in messages?

Laughing to self

When a friend sends you a funny meme, video, etc., you might send "LTS" if you are laughing about it on the inside. It is a more reserved variation of other direct options, such as LOL, LMAO, and ROFL.

People use LTS when they think laughing out loud and being noticed by others might be inappropriate. For example, if you send your friend a hilarious GIF while they're in class, they might respond with "LTS." Additionally, LTS does not mean something is not funny enough to laugh aloud; it is just not appropriate to do it audibly at the moment.
