A friend of mine messaged me on Snapchat with the letters ‘DTB’. I felt old, since I had no idea what the meaning of this anagram was. I had to ask a teenager to learn about this texting slang that was totally new to me.
I was shown two different meanings for DTB. You’ll have to judge the meaning by the context it is sent in.
Meaning 1 – ‘Don’t text back’
The first meaning is It’s kind of the equivalent to those ‘No reply’ email messages you’re probably already familiar with. The sender of the message is telling you not to text them after the message is read. That a reply is not required.
Example: “Meet you for dinner at 7. I’ll be in a meeting, so DTB.”
Meaning 2 – ‘Don’t trust b*tches’
Previously, DTB meant ‘Don’t trust b*tches’, and was made famous by a song called ‘DTB 4 Life’.
Example: “She crashed your car. DTB with your car!”
I hope this post has helped you fully understand what ‘DTB’ means in the world of text messaging.
