Submission + - The FBI Built the Most Comprehensive List Internet Acronyms Ever

Jason Koebler writes: Internet slang: Do you use it? If so, do it AYOR (at your own risk), because the FBI knows exactly what you're saying thanks to the agency's insane list of "Twitter shorthand." Rather than just rely on Urban Dictionary or a Google search, the agency has compiled an 83 page list of more than 2,800 acronyms.
The FBI responded to a FOIA request with one of the most illegible scans of a document you'll ever see, embedded on a CD—so maybe the agency isn't all that up on its technology, or maybe it's just doing its best to KTAS (keep this a secret).
