What does FYTB stand for?
FYTB stands for ‘F*** You Talking ‘Bout’.

How to use FYTB?
FYTB can be used as a form of an expression to ask the other person what they’re talking about in an angry or a tone of shock (could be pleasant). The sender uses this expression to show these emotions in a shorter form over text messages.
