An Academic Look at WUWTB

WUWTB is an initialism abbreviation. Technically, this means it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., Dublyu Yu Dublyu Tee Bee), but as this is harder to say than "what do you want to talk ‘bout?", it is not often uttered using its letters. In other words, the abbreviation WUWTB is for efficiency in writing and not efficiency in speech.

WUWTB is an interrogative sentence (i.e., a question), but it is commonly seen without a question mark. In other words, it can be written "WUWTB?" or "WUWTB".
