What does YST stand for in chat and text messages?

You still there

When someone sends you YST (you still there), they're wondering if you're still around to respond to messages. You're likely to receive YST during chat or text conversations, when you haven't responded to the sender in a while.

For example, if someone you're chatting with sends you a question, and you don't reply quickly, they may follow up their question with YST. People may also send YST just to check whether you're at your keyboard, especially if it's been a bit since either of you sent a message.


Hello, yst?
... sorry, H2P
