What does NTA stand for on Reddit and social media?

Not the a**hole

On Reddit and other social media platforms, NTA stands for "not the a**hole." Posters use this acronym to tell others they did not do anything wrong.

Most often, NTA is used in response to "am I the a**hole," or AITA, posts. In Reddit's popular r/AmItheA**hole subreddit, posters ask questions like "AITA for pretending to be my twin?" or "AITA for making cookies for my co-workers?" If the OP was not an a**hole, commenters often start their responses with NTA.

While NTA is most popular on Reddit, you may see it used on other social media platforms, including Twitter, TikTok, and Instagram. Often, when people use NTA on these platforms, they are responding to a question that has been poached from the r/AmItheA**hole subreddit.
