What is nd short for in messages?


When you are messaging online or through texts, you might see the "nd" abbreviation, which is short for "and." It is basically "and" without the "a."

Nd is beneficial when you are in a hurry or there is limited space in your message and removing a character is crucial (we've all been there, amirite?). For example, if your tweet is perfect but has one too many characters, you can shorten any ands in it to nd.

However, remember that nd is one of the most obscure ways to shorten and, which might lead to confusion if the recipient is not slang-savvy, like your grandma or history teacher. More common options include "n" or an ampersand (&).
