IMO – In my opinion

The phrase “in my opinion” is often abbreviated as “IMO.” The majority of the time, it is utilized in a text message when a person is expressing their viewpoint.

The acronym can be elaborated on in uppercase, & it is an extremely common abbreviation that is used in chatting, on Twitter, and in other areas of social media.

  • “IMO, you should change this dress.

  • “IMO, home is a best place to enjoy with family.”

IDK – I don’t know

The acronym IDK stands for “I don’t know.” You could come across the abbreviation “IDK” in a quick text or any other place where individuals write notes to one another. In most cases, it takes the shape of a response to a query or a portion of a phrase in which you state that you do not possess the information that is being requested of you.

IDK is often written with lowercase letters rather than all capital letters because its usage is informal rather than formal. However, due to the fact that it is an initialize, the form with all capital letters is the “correct” one.
