What does WITR stand for in online chat?

Who's in the room

Before someone you're chatting with shares a secret or explicit message, they might ask WITR (who's in the room). This person wants to make sure no one could possibly look at your screen and read the message they're about to send.

In many cases, WITR is a red flag, which signals that a conversation is about to veer into inappropriate or unseemly territory. If you're not okay with that, you may want to say that someone else, such as your parents, siblings, or roommate, is in the room with you (or even better, that you need to go AFK).


I want to send you something special ... but first, WITR?
My entire family is here actually ... and they're asking for me. I have to go bye

It, in this case, being a secret chat message
