What does OBTW stand for?

Oh, by the way

Most often, OBTW (oh, by the way) is used at the start of side notes and reminders that someone has inserted into a conversation. For example, your brother might text you "OBTW, remember 2B@ mom's @ 10 on Sunday," to remind you about your family's weekend plans.

These side notes and reminders often pop up out of the blue, during discussions that were previously focused on something else. So when you see OBTW at the start of a sentence or message, get ready for a bit of a digression.

Right, I'll do that today
