    Instagram users love to find shortcuts.

    Whether it’s a quick way to fix an issue, a shortcut way of deleting or following lots of users at once, or a shorthand way of communicating a message, if it’s possible then you can be sure that Instagram users are on top of it.

    Which is why when you browse Instagram and start reading users’ captions, you will notice that many are packed with acronyms and shorthand ways of sharing common phrases and actions.

    Today’s article is about TM – an acronym which is used across Instagram. The challenge of course is that TM can be (and is) used as a shortcut way of saying a few different things…

    TM can mean any of the following:

    • Text Message
    • Tomorrow
    • Too Much
    • Text Me
    • Trademark

    Yes, the list is pretty long. But which is the most common?

    We tend to see TM being used most often as a shorthand way of referring to a Text Message. However, Text Me is also popular among those who want to take conversations offline, while Trademark has been known to be denoted using TM next to a word that a user claims to have invented.

    Which one from the list above sticks out to you as representing TM most effectively?
