What does WHYBATT stand for?

Where have you been all this time

When someone finally re-appears after being absent for a while, you might send them "WHYBATT," which stands for "where have you been all this time." Most people use it online when messaging and on social media or when texting.

It can be very distressing when someone important goes MIA online or in-person, and you cannot contact them. You may enjoy the person's company, or you might need them to complete an important task, such as a team project or group discussion. So when you finally make contact with them, you might become overwhelmed and send them "WHYBATT?!?!"

In most cases, you should feel flattered if someone sends you WHYBATT since they missed your presence. However, they may want you to do something for them, which, in that case, the acronym would come across as disingenuous.
