Vid is short for video. Kewl kids may use this abbreviation while discussing the latest videos from YouTube, TikTok, or other sources.

For example, a T Swift fan may ask whether you've seen the singer's latest vid - which likely refers to her latest music video (though it could also be a reference to Tay Tay's latest TikTok post).

2. What is vid short for?


Vid, or "The Vid," is an abbreviation for "COVID-19," a disease that spread throughout the world at the end of 2019 into the spring of 2020. You will most likely see the abbreviation online on social media, but you may also hear it spoken in person.

Before spring 2020, most people understood "vid" as an abbreviation for "video." However, as covid spread in March 2020 and health guidelines were put in place, people, especially teenagers and young adults, began simplifying covid as vid.

To be clear, "vid" is not an official abbreviation used by medical experts. Instead, it is only used in informal contexts, typically when joking about the virus.

Even though "vid" is primarily uttered jokingly, it altered the world, mostly negatively. So be judicious when using vid because people may see it as disrespectful.
