What is we short for?


When you just don't care, you can message "we." It is an abbreviation for "whatever" but may be confused with the word "we," which is why people write it more commonly as "w/e."

Most people who use the abbreviation are teenagers when texting or messaging online, especially on social media. They often use it to convey indifference about a question or thought and sound "cool."

People may also use it to end an argument online, like when they don't want to expend any more energy on a lost cause. Or, if you are supes laid back and like to "go with the flow," the "we" abbreviation may be your life motto.
