What Does BTTT Mean in a Text?

BTTT means "Back To The Top." The abbreviation BTTT has the same function as the more common BTT (Bump To Top). Used on chat forums, the term BTTT is usually included in a comment as a blatant way to send a conversation thread back to the top of the page. For example:
  • "I am posting this BTTT because everyone should read this thread.
In effect, it means "I am deliberately putting a new comment on this thread so it goes back to the top of the page." A BTTT does not hide the fact that the comment is designed to do this (as opposed to contribute to the conversation).
